If I am coming home to drink I should already know what I want and how I want it poured.

Fubegra: Wenchmaster: I wonder if I could request "Tea. Earl Grey. Hot."

Can't believe no one else mentioned the resemblance.


It'd probably give you something that was almost, but not quite, entirely unlike tea.


That means they nailed Earl Grey perfectly.

You want some more?


Thank you, was afraid I'd have to post that.

For the DIY set, there's the Mr Distiller (right); it's make for distilling water but can be modified to a lower temp for alcohol.

Because this is too complicated.


Always nice to see a top shelf rail.

You know, just because you can doesn't mean you should.  Just my take on it.
BTW how nasty will it get before anyone will clean it?  Ugh . . .

As a novelty, I like the concept.

As an actual product I'd use, not so much.

Bourbon. Straight up. (These days it's a couple of fingers in a 6 oz juice glass.) With a water back, ice in the summer. It's so simple I can do it myself. And it costs no more than the materials themselves, plus a calorie or two in the assembling.

Mind you a good mug of coffee or tea takes a little more thought & effort. Lately I've given up and settle for store-brand French roast in the big cans.

That whiskey is more important to me than coffee is not something someone who hasn't heard from me in 20 years would expect: they'd be expecting me to be roasting my own beans in the oven and grinding them with a mortar & pestle. And wolfing down half a sheet of blotter (or the equivalent) a month, perhaps with some smack to take the edge off. Indeed, one chick from middle school said she expected me to be dead of AIDS or some kind of OD decades ago.
But now I'm no longer an underweight thenthitive poet and artiste: I'm a fat belle-lettrist redneck.

Let's hear it for Kentucky! 13.5 years and counting, longer than I've lived continuously in any state since puberty. Summer of '12 I had a chance to be homeless in Hawaii but I couldn't leave my dog.

Bourbon. Lots of bourbon. Keep tracing them ancient-aged buffaloes, Mr Sazerac McAffee.

gopher321: I applaud the inventor's ingenuity and I hope they make a mint, but that thing looks WAY too problematic to me. Might as well rent a bartender.


Plus the right bartenders some with low cut tops and boobs. (and no not the fat man type)

jake_lex: Whoever said you have to fill a Keurig with water?


the keurig heats whatever is in its reservoir to 192 degrees F, 89c
ethanol boils at 173 F, 78c
the ethanol would boil out of the solution.

Mixed drinks are for frat boys and truckers; cocktails are for poseurs. Especially if you spend two or three hours' pay on a fifth and then add shiat to it to ruin any taste quality that separates it from Gilbey's or Old Crow. A little ice or water is okay sometimes, but sugary fizz or prepackaged mixers that are 1/5 guar gum? Who would do that to Tito's or Elijah Craig, let alone Pappy Van?

What if all I want is a bourbon on ice with a twist? Doesn't seem worth it.

Nick Nostril: What if all I want is a bourbon on ice with a twist? Doesn't seem worth it.


Ice? Twist? Heretic! Blasphemer! Unless you're drinking Old Crow, of course.

By the way, those Mr Distiller things might be great to further refine whatever cheap liquor is marked down at Rite Aid. Drip $10/gallon Old Crow through a charcoal water filter and then distill it one or two more times, winding up with something kinda like regular Bushmill's maybe. After a month or two it'd pay for itself.

Rincewind53: Stop trying to replace people with machines, you goddamn bastards. We like bartenders because they're awesome and  not machines.


fark bartenders. I'd rather push a button than fight 80 other dudes for the privilege of paying somebody $5 a minute to prepare drinks.

Although I guess it might be harder to score coke from a drink dispenser...

Britta filters work pretty well. I poured come cheap vodak over it while watching a move, probably 30 times. -- super smooth no funny taste

whistleridge: It almost, but not quite, entirely doesn't resemble the computer on  Heart of Gold?

Damn! I should have made that connection myself. Excellent, work, both of you.

Anderson's Pooper: Does it take a measurement of your female guests' breast size and/or hotness level and make the drinks proportionately stronger?  If not, then I have no use for it.


That's probably an app, available for an additional fee.

/Your jib. I like the cut of it.

69gnarkill69: sandi_fish: How hard is it to make a drink?  Come up with something that makes my bed and cleans my toilet and I'll be impressed.

Comes with a price that may or may not be worth it.


OK, she doesn't have to make the bed or clean the toilet, if she brings me my bourbon, I'd say, I'm in the bonus round.

What the hell is the world coming to when alcoholics can't be bothered to learn how to make a drink?

/Whiskey soda, it's not that hard

The fantasy: "Robot barkeep, bring me a Ramos gin fizz, well shaken, easy on the orange flower water."

The reality: BIDIBIDIBIDI I AM ONE OF THOSE FANCY COKE MACHINES BUT I DISPENSE WELL RUM INSTEAD OF GRAPE FANTA SYRUP BIDIBIDIBIDI

doubled99: what is a Keurig?


Coffee maker. They process ghastly instant powdered coffee in a manner sufficiently complex and expensive to convince Americans they're a premium item.
 
2013-10-08 12:12:54 PM
open beer, drink it, or pour in glass if you want. open bourbon, scotch or whiskey and pour in a glass. I don't think I will require a machine to do that for me.
