Need a hand making delicious cocktails at home? Tito’s Handmade Vodka and popular culinary site Allrecipes realize that not everyone is a master mixologist. That’s why they’ve teamed up to launch a mixology chatbot called Barkeep that promises to make at-home bartending easier than ever.
Here’s how it works: When you connect with the Barkeep chatbot through Facebook Messenger, it allows you to access a diverse selection of cocktail suggestions based on several different factors. The bot takes everything from the current season to your individual preferences into account before providing you with a detailed cocktail recipe that includes ingredients and step-by-step mixing instructions
Barkeep can also help you find the ingredients you need to make its cocktails if you don’t already have them at home. Tito’s and Allrecipes have incorporated a feature in the chatbot that allows users to purchase ingredients directly through the alcohol E-commerce platform Drizly.
It’s probably no surprise that there are quite a few recipes that call for Tito’s in Barkeep, but you can find plenty of other cocktails that don’t include vodka as well. As a result of the partnership between Tito’s and Allrecipes, you can also expect to see more Tito’s-based recipes showing up on Allrecipes in the coming months.
