Happy hour


Happy Hour is an entertaining voice skill devoted to cocktail recipes developed by Peacocok Cove, LLC. This one-of-a-kind skill attempts to amuse adventurous drinkers to explore cocktail recipes and concoct delightful flavors. To narrow it down, it comprises both the recipes and its list of ingredients for various bar drinks that are listed on the skill.

An extensive variety of classic to complex bar drink recipes has been included targeting avid drinkers allowing them to search for their favorite recipes by specifying the name of the drink. Moreover, a broadened search by category is allowed whereby users can look up a catalog of drinks based on the type of alcohol. This enables a streamlined search for both amateurs and expert drinkers helping them find the cocktail recipe that falls in line with their desired flavor. The varied methods of search offered by the skill itself account for its efficiency. That said, to get a detailed list of the available drink categories, users can filter by mentioning the starting letter. Another standout feature of this skill is its ability to email users the requested drink recipe. Additionally, to notch up the user experience, a recipe card is sent to the phone or display device along with the ingredients and detailed instructions. The skill efficiently guides the conversation without causing any hiccups by providing ample verbal cues. The inclusion of a robust ‘help’ section that covers most of the app’s features endows users with the required guidance to navigate the skill back and forth with ease. Well, that being said, there seem to be a few downsides that could let down the users at times. One of them is that, most often, the skill abruptly stops soon after providing the details in response to the users’ spoken request. Besides, the skill lacks the option to repeat which is yet another downer. The listing of drinks and commands in the help section could seem quite lengthy and therefore too much to take in one go for the users.

The VOGO Voice team scores this skill 4 out of 5 stars based on our rating system. Yet, you’ll have to try it for yourself and see if it is an enjoyable Alexa app that will aid you in preparing cocktails of your choice.  Make sure to follow the recipes and instruction cards sent to you to create the perfect blending for your drink.
