TheCocktailDB was built in 2015 to provide a free data source api for drinks online
in the hope that developers would build applications and cool projects ontop of it.
TheCocktailDB originated on the Kodi forums as a way to browse cocktail recipes on your TV.

Many developers have since contributed to the project and built apps on top of it. You can see some of them listed below:

TheCocktailDB is also used by universities to tech web design and programming as it has an easy to use API and cool content.

And used in Apps for Android and iPhone!

There is also an app created for the pebble smart watch!
