MonsterCocktails is a cocktail database website showcasing handpicked recipes, beautiful photos, custom ingredient lists and more.
The idea of this site came to me many years ago as I was learning to become a web designer. I've built three different versions of it, from concept sketches to the back-end code.
For this version I partnered with a web developer so I could focus more on the visual style that was very important to me as I wanted something unique. I designed and coded the front-end (HTML/CSS) as well as handcrafted all the recipes for the photo-shoot. This site is still a work in progress.
It took three days to shoot the first hundred recipes professionally. Each recipe was handmade and setup with its own props and lighting.
This feature allows users to select ingredients from a list (usually what the user had at home) and it will generate a list of recipes than can be made.
