Before today one of the playerbase's most wanted features for the mobile version of Fortnite was controller support.

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.
