I'm looking for a free/open Drink (Cocktail) Recipe database. I found this one: which looks like exactly what I want, but this project doesn't have the budget to buy a database like this. Is there anything free that can get me close?

I found a wiki with many coctails recipes and extra info, but since I can see, it has a strict copyright. Maybe you can contact with them, if you want the database for non-commercial use.

You might look at the source for Bartendro - - there is a default drink DB and I know there has been at least some community interest in building a more comprehensive open drink database.

I would be really surprised if such a data set existed. Prices will vary depending of your location and/or country. I think the best for you is to merge your source with a price index source.

For example here in Ontario, LCBO (the provincial monopoly selling alcohol) information have been made available through an API.

The Wikimedia project Wikibooks has a book on bartending, including a full chapter of cocktail recipes. Not a database, but pretty comprehensive and possibly a good start for a proper database.
