One of the advantages of being the world's largest search engine is that you learn a lot about what people don't know or can't remember.
It turns out the world is daunted by cocktails and has sought help enough times from Google that the company decided to get in on the mixology instruction game itself.
On Thursday, the tech giant launched a feature that provides step-by-step instructions for how to prepare a desired cocktail and a list of ingredients. (It also suggests garnish and drinkware.)
Google spokeswoman Krisztina Radosavljevic-Szilagyi tells The Salt the tool could also be used to help you "feel like a pro when you're ordering [drinks] out on the town." Not sure if a White Russian contains cream or milk? Ask Google, and you'll get a quick blurb about the drink — and a photo.
