All our ingredients have a full page listing, along with options to purchase the ingredient via our online sales partner - TheDrinksShop.com. We can include background information, a large image of your brand along with a website link to your brand website.
Our ingredients also go through a substitution alogirthm when we process what recipes users can make, meaning that even if a user does not have your brand in stock, we show them possible recipes that they can make using your brand instead of a competitor brand that the cocktail would usually require.
Once your ingredient is in our database, we can then add a multitude of cocktails to the site that use your product, encouraging users to purchase the brand. Even if users do not have your brand currently in their stock, we still highlight these cocktails to show them what they could make if they bought your product.
All recipes feature back links to the ingredient listing, along with social media share options for users to share the brand specific recipe with facebook, twitter and google plus.

- The Best Cocktails to Make with x Brand
- Cocktails to sip to after a hard days work
- Cocktails for party goers
- Or a list that is bespoke to your target market and demographics.
