Settings provides 3 options for the My Cocktails list:


All Ingredients must be in Cabinet – Keep this box unchecked if you are happy for cocktails to be suggested that may include mixers (i.e. soft drinks such as Orange Juice, Lemonade and Cola), that you do not have listed in My Cabinet.
Check this box, if you want to make cocktails with drinks from My Cabinet only. N.B. This means some cocktails may be excluded from the My Cocktails list because you do not have the right mixers to make them, even if you have the right alcohol ingredients.

Hide Virgin cocktails – Keep this box unchecked if you wish to see virgin cocktails in the My Cabinet list.
Check the box if you do not wish to see virgin cocktails.

Hide Punch cocktails – Keep this box unchecked if you wish to see punch-style cocktails in the My Cabinet list.
Check the box if you do not wish to see punch-style cocktails. N.B. Punch-style cocktails are usually made in large quantities for large numbers of people, rather than as individual or 2-serve portions.
