Coding and drinking might not always be the wisest of bedfellows – but the combination has paid off for one Bath firm.
App developers Riot have teamed up with their local bar, Door 34, to whet the appetite of cocktail drinkers.
Inspired by evenings at the bar, staff at Riot set about devising an iPhone app that generates new cocktail recipes.
With the shake of a phone, the Shaken app comes up with the recipe for a new drink with a novel name.
“It’s a bit like drinking roulette,” says Andy Walsh, owner of Door 34.
Elliott Kember, of Riot, said the app had been developed during one of his firm’s regular hack nights.
“It only took about half-an-hour to get it working and then we all trooped back down to the bar to try it out,” recalls Elliott. “To everyone’s great surprise it worked really well. That was a great night!”
