Clink Custom Cocktail App Case Study


CDE 350

Clink App





Clink is a cocktail app that generates unique drink recipes from ingredients one has in their own home. The Make A Cocktail quiz allows the user to fill out all the ingredients they currently have available, and the app will curate a unique cocktail in seconds. The app also offers a Tool Glossary, Database of Classic Cocktails, a Blog, and a Favorites section.
This work was the result of the final group project from my CDE 350 Web and Mobile Publishing course. A finalized and prototyped mobile application needed to be presented in Adobe XD, along with 15-20 mobile pages. The app should solve a problem that we could relate to, or fill a current lack in the market. The app should include a logo, app icon, iconography, typography, and photos and/or vector images.
As a group, we found that the Apple App Store, despite its many offerings, lacked a solid and modern cocktail generator application that was user-friendly, attractive, and aimed at younger (but still 21+) audiences. As a result, our goals for the project were to:
  •  create a platform educating users about cocktails
  • incorporate a blog so that users can feel a sense of community
  • include a database of cocktails
  • generate a glossary of popular tools and ingredients used for mixology
The target audience is for those 21+, foodies wanting to try new drinks, and newly 21 users who want to find their niche drink of choice.
