Also, since 1998 I have more or less stopped keeping track of reviews of The Webtender.


From the September 1998 issue of

Mix Her a Pitcher of Perfect Freezing Garrets:
The Webtender

One of the handiest wine-and-spirits sites on the Web tells you how to mix any of 4000 drinks as well as what you can make when all you have on hand is half a lemon, a pound of processed American cheese and a quarter of a bottle of vermouth. (

No review has been written, so I tell about it myself:

This is my favourite review. I received a phone call from a radio program called "Safari" on Norwegian national radio. On Friday 26. Oct 1996 i was in studio, and live on the air.
That was really fun. It is probably the best coverage I've had in Norway since I started. Thanks Birger!

I was also on the air in the same program on Friday 7. Feb 1997 to talk about The Webtender again.

What'll it be--the "Hop Skip and Go Naked Punch," the "Blood Clot," the "Sandra Buys A Dog," or "Motor Oil"? Can you say no to a "Monkey Gland Cocktail"? The Webtender has 1,662 drinks, and with its Bartender's Handbook, you will know enough about mixology to stir up your party.

This "on-line bartender" lets you tap a brimming database of more than 4,000 drink recipes, from the "'57 Chevy with a White License Plate" to the Zorro (an unholy combination of Sambuca, Irish Cream, and mint liqueur). Browse by name, category, or glass (low-ball, high-ball, etc.); search by name or ingredient; or tell the Webtender what you've got on hand, and he'll tell you what to make. Check the Bartender's Handbook section for bar measurement tips, anti-hangover remedies, and a jugful of drinking games.

The Webtender

Content: 43/50
Presentation: 29/50
Experience: 39/50

This "online bartender" is an exhaustive guide to cocktail preparation, with hundreds of drink recipes online. We tried a few randomly chosen place-names and came up with Chicago Fizzes, New York Sours, California Dreams, and Floridas (no drinks named after Minnesota as yet, though). The "Bartender's Handbook" has a bit of reading material, including mixology basics, drinking games, and "Dr. I.M. Bibe's Anti-Hangover Tips," a list of mostly sensible-sounding suggestions like taking aspirin with water before you collapse into bed ("be SURE you know what pills you're swallowing"). Oddly, Webmaster Pål Løberg says "I do not drink alcohol myself," so proceed at your own risk.

The Webtender

An incredible resource of alcoholic (and some non-alcoholic) beverages. The site offers recipes for almost 1,300 drinks, from your basic martini to the Ma Bonnie Wee Hen. The site, maintained by Pål Løberg, also includes Dr. I. M. Bibe's Anti-Hangover Tips, a ton of drinking games, standard bar measurements (a splash = 1/32 ounce), and An Introduction to Mixology that provides extensive information about the basics of mixing drinks.

  • A nondrinking Norwegian college student thought up this sometimes hilarious site, which lists thousands of drinks and various recipes for making them. He has gleaned information from around the world for his Bartender's Handbook, which concerns itself with the basics of mixology, antihangover advice, a bevy of drinking games, and the General Drink Recipes archive, which is staggering (no pun intended). A gigantic resource for drink-makers of any level of experience, including those who only care to imbibe nonalcoholic versions of their favorite cocktails.

The WebTender
Censorship be darned and give us a martini. The WebTender, an online bartender, brings you scads of cocktail recipes, both well-known and obscure (such as Sandr a Buys A Dog), along with statistics on most-viewed recipes. Some drinks have mo re than one formula, but other recipes are way off the beam -- we wouldn't even think of putting creme de almond in our chic summer party Zombies. (Eeeew .)

Unsure of how to make Sex on the Beach? Use The Webtender to find ingredients, preparation techniques and recommended glassware for this and thousands of other drinks. You'll also find a Bartender's Handbook, a forum and chat room to mix drink conversation and a bookstore. But the best feature of The Webtender is the index of drinks and the searchable database. If you can't decide what you'd best like to imbibe, then browse through the drink index for intoxicating ideas. The adventuresome can use the random drink generator as a means of picking their poison.

The whole world is going to Hell in a handbasket. So what are you going to do about it? That's right -- start drinking heavily! And if you like a little variety in your alcoholic diet, we suggest a trip to see the Webtender. You can browse their database of some 1,650+ drink recipes for something just a little different. Low on ingredients? You can tell Webtender what you DO have and it will spit out some recipes for you. Great! Now we have to get a computer for behind the bar!
