Bartender Mix Genius is a hilarious new game for the iOS and Android platforms where you direct the bartender on what drinks to make and what to mix, he makes and mixes them, then he drinks them and judges them on how good they are. You get scored depending on how good your drink is, and with a high enough score, you can unlock new liquors, mixers, and more. Read on for some tips and tricks for Bartender Mix Genius!
This is one of those games where failing is one of the funniest parts of the games, due to Miguel’s reactions when you serve him a terrible drink. If you want the funniest reactions out of Miguel, severe him some of the most bizarre combinations that you can think of. Serve him flavors that go horribly together, such as lemon and Kahlua all in one drink.
If you want to get actual high scores, though, then you have to serve good flavor combinations in just the right balance. Think about what you would use to make a real cocktail, and if you aren’t someone who knows cocktail recipes too well, google a recipe featuring ingredients found in this game to see what you can come up with, and then try to imitate it in real life.
Also, think about flavor combinations that would work well when you’re cooking even without using alcohol, and use those, such as combining Kahlua (a coffee liqueur) with a Creme de Cacao as part of a drink. Even some of the more unusual combinations in the game can work well, too, so be willing to experiment.
Use Miguel’s reactions to gauge how good your drink is. The bad ones are hilarious to watch, but the decent to good ones are useful. If he blows a party horn, then he’s bored by your drink even though he still liked it. If he nods his head, he liked it a lot. If he starts playing air guitar, then he absolutely loved it, and you’re about to get a high score.
You have to earn certain scores in order to unlock new drinks. The scores quickly get tougher and tougher to earn, so keep trying new combinations in order to make your way to new drinks. New drinks will allow you to make cocktails and combinations that are worth more points.
