Around the Livingetc office we've been talking about what the perfect kitchen needs. Countertop space, drawer space, a cooker. They all top everyone's lists. But once you get into the equipment and appliances part, well, literally no one had "cocktail making machine" on their list. But I think, perhaps, we all should.
Because to my delight, cocktails, even with their innate complexities, can now be created by a machine. Keurig has corned the market on a slimline take that can mix a Manhattan at the press of a button. Known as being one of the most affordable and best coffee maker brands, Keurig's cocktail machines aren't exuberantly expensive either — surprisingly affordable, in fact.
And as I've seen all over Tiktok, they're going viral too — for good reason, it seems. It makes me so happy to know that after a long day you can get a mixed drink at a button press, or at a dinner party you can just keep the cocktails coming. So here's why I think every modern kitchen should have one.
TikToks like these began going viral during the holiday season. Dubbed the ‘ultimate hosting accessory,’ cocktail machines make it so easy to be the perfect host. Rather than play bartender all evening, this novel genre of kitchen appliance expertly accommodates everyone’s drink orders, pleasing even the pickiest of guests.
Bartesian Premium Cocktail Dispensing Machine
Garnering a near perfect 5-star rating on Target’s website, Bartesian’s Premium Cocktail Dispensing Machine is the best on the market. No more complicated ingredients; all that’s needed along with cocktail pods are spirits like whiskey, vodka, rum, gin, or tequila.
Simply insert one of Bartesians’s many cocktail capsule varieties, like Whiskey Sour or Margarita, select your preferred drink strength, and viola! Behold your bar-quality cocktail.
If you’re concerned about a pod failing to achieve the same nuance found in ordinary craft cocktails, rest assured that each of Bartesian’s cocktail flavors were developed by experienced mixologists. According to satisfied customers, they taste on par with or better than bartender made drinks.
Bartesian Cocktail Pods
The gorgeous sparking drinks shown in the above TikTok were made with Bartesian’s ‘Great Gatsby’ and ‘Witch’s Heart’ cocktail capsules, both of which you can shop at Bartesian.com. Discover additional drink varieties below.
The Sidecar was allegedly invented in the 1930’s. Full of vintage charm, hop right on in and enjoy a delightful blend of cognac, lemon juice, and triple sec.
Sample a little of everything with Bartesian’s ‘The Classic Collection’ variety pack. Including flavors like Uptown Rocks, Margarita, and Espresso Martini, you’re bound to discover a pod that suits your taste.
Style Editor-Approved Barware
No cocktail is complete without the proper barware! You won't need any shakers or stirrers, though you can still elevate your drink order with the following cocktail accessories.
The Eve coupe is CB2’s best-selling glass for good reason. Timelessly chic, this flat rimmed glass is the perfect choice for any occasion. This particular version features a unique smokey hue, offering a more sultry take on the coupe we know and love.
Linen cocktail napkins have been all the rage lately, especially if they’re embroidered. This set by Misette checks all the boxes with its decorated borders and unique crustacean imagery, lending an elevated yet coastal flair.
I am so drawn to the atypical nature of these Serax glasses. Featuring an oversized rounded foot and a green glass chalice, they’re just divine.
This Evan Jerry-designed coaster set is an instant classic with its warm polished leather and ribbed stainless steel holder. At only $35, it's such a steal.
Fitting with the rest of Tom Dixon’s iconic Tank collection, these glasses feature compelling proportions and architectural lines. Brilliantly simple, this set will remain in your collection for ages.
