You could use a drink is a pet project of mine. The idea is simple. You select a type of drink, write a short message, then share the result. It started modestly as a pen on Codepen. When I got an email that one of my personal web heros, Chris Coyier, liked it I thought I had something to build on.

Behind the Scenes

All of the graphics on the site are built with CSS. While it may not exactly be practical, its a fun challenge to create the shapes and animations all in code. Since the drinks are built with CSS and coded in EMS I can scale them and reuse the same code for the selection step. It uses a firebase backend to persist the data so all the creations you make have a shareable URL.
