The famous Mr. B — the first Mr. Boston: Official Bartender’s & Party Guide, published in 1935 and a celebrated classic ever since — has almost nothing on iBar, a virtual database for your iPod that serves up 1,100 cocktail recipes (some with audible instructions), liquor lore, mixing maneuvers, and bar-lingo definitions. The $30 download even tells you how to say “Cheers!" in multiple languages. It’s like keeping Mr. Boston in your back pocket. Available at select Apple stores or through www.talkingpanda.com.
