Shocker! A New York Times writer refers to his testosterone
worry: he speaks
of his “testosterone level plunging
.” So it’s ok. If he had said that his testosterone level was rising
, you can be sure the sentence would not have found its way into the Times
Apps to Give the Novice Mixologist a Fighting Chance

My friends Cade and Sarah recently sandbagged me with a pink, frilly looking cocktail that sent my testosterone level plunging the minute I laid eyes on it.
Twenty minutes later, when, as far as I could tell, people were speaking in tongues, I gave this previously nameless drink a name: the Wiccan Debutante. It sounded clever at the time. Then again, I had been drinking.
I would like to return the favor, but vengeance is slightly complicated because I’m a lame mixologist. I do, however, have a second brain. It’s called a smartphone, and when it is loaded with a great bartending app, I stand a fighting chance.
That’s especially true with an app as great as Top Shelf ($1), the best of the many bartending ones I tried. My short list included iTinis Lite (free on iPhone), Pocket Cocktails ($1 on iPhone and Android) and 8,500+ Drink & Cocktail Recipes Free (iPhone and Android, where it is listed as 8,500+ Drink Recipes).
Nothing I could find on BlackBerry came close to Top Shelf. [cont]
