Our editor claims not to have a drink problem but we are slightly suspicious. We recently put out a call to all those PR agencies out there for web sites for us to take a look at and low and behold as soon as Mixxit appeared the editor was straight on the site.
When all is said and done what we all want is a site that is relatively simple to use and can help us empty out those leftovers in the drinks cabinet and we think Mixxit has a great idea.
Simply go to the mixselector section and select the drink of choice using the arrows – in this example we shall use Vodka – select one of those left over mixers (Bols always seems a good idea when you buy it!!) and then select go. Hey presto a few drink suggestions appear – admittedly not always with the ingredients you wanted but it is a great idea.
We used this site at a party last weekend and found it to be a great way to sort out the drinks – no longer where we rooting around in the back of a cupboard for a book that had never been opened.
All in all a good site with some very useful functions. With Mixxit obviously the aim is to get you to buy stuff from the site but even just to visit it is a good idea. We’re giving the site three stars – it’s very good and has some great ideas in it but the choice of drinks is a bit limited. Please take some time to give the other sections a go – you can get top ten suggestion, say what style of drink you want and even save your favourites list.
