Google Search Now Serving Up Cocktail Recipes With Drink Ingredients & Directions
Want to know how to make a Mint Julep? Just ask Google.
Earlier today, Google announced its latest search feature via twitter, letting followers know, “Because it’s always 5 o’clock somewhere: Cocktail recipes now served on Google Search.”
The new cocktail recipe search feature works on both desktop and mobile for a number of cocktails. I searched everything from an Old Fashioned and Cosmopolitan to a Pimm’s Cup and Mint Julep (because, that’s the first drink that comes to mind when you grow up in Louisville, Kentucky).
Using voice search on my phone delivered the following mobile results along with audible drink directions listed in the quick answer box.
The same “how do I make a mint julep” search on desktop included a few ads above the quick answer box, along with knowledge graph results.
