Cocktail Flow shakes itself from the Gingerbread era and pours out as a gorgeous Material Design app

For years now, I've been looking for a modern replacement to Cocktail Flow, one of our favorite cocktail recipes apps back in 2011. The alternatives have all been rather disappointing, and I've resigned to just Googling a recipe whenever I need it. But let's just say that my spirit is a little buzzed now because Cocktail Flow has been taken off the shelf, stirred with all the Material Design I can think of, and served straight in a sparkling update with a cute little umbrella on top.

WhatsApp beta adds Unicode 11 emojis, private replies in groups

Back when I was six years old, a teacher showed us the image of an animal and asked us what it was. Several students answered "hippopotamus," and I was left wide-eyed and speechless. I was not used to being one of those who didn't know something, so the feeling stuck with me and I started working harder to avoid being as clueless as I was that day.

My husband would tell you that I made him walk the entire Valencia Bioparc twice on our honeymoon because we missed the hippo on our first pass.
