When was the last time you hosted friends or family for a happy hour or game night? What about a virtual game night happy hour? I LOVE an excuse to have friends over and if it’s not anyone’s birthday, game night is the perfect excuse. When hosting a happy hour, I love being able to serve everyone their favorite drinks. The new Drinkworks Home Bar makes it SO easy to craft delicious, bar-quality drinks in under a minute without having to have different bottles of alcohol stocked in your home. Everyone can choose their favorite cocktail, spritzer, or cider, make it with the touch of a button and spend more time enjoying each other and their drinks!
WHAT IS THE NEW DRINKWORKS HOME BAR?
The Drinkworks Home Bar is a really cool cocktail appliance that allows you to create bar quality cocktails by basically just pressing a button. It uses technology to calculate the amount of water, carbonation and uses Quick Cool KOLD® Technology to dispense a perfectly mixed cocktail at the perfect temperature every time. You don’t have to measure, shake, or look up recipes to make a great drink for yourself or happy hour guests!
You can purchase liquid-filled alcohol pods in many favorite drinks (with more to come). Drinks like the Classic Margarita, Cosmopolitan, Daiquiri, Long Island Iced Tea, Mojito, Moscow Mule, Old Fashioned, or Whiskey Sour. Check out all the options here. Each pod is filled with premium spirits and natural flavors.
When you first get the Drinkworks Home Bar, you’ll go through a few steps to rinse it out and get it ready to go. It was super easy and fairly quick. Then you can add ice water to the machine to get going quickly. The appliance will tell you what to do each step of the way and remind you if you need to add more water. Once it’s ready, you add the pod, place your glass underneath and press “start”. You can add a simple garnish at the end for the full bar experience, other than that, it’s ready to enjoy. When hosting, keep some ice, garnishes, and glasses nearby and display all the pod options you have. You feel like you’re able to host like you’re at a bar – right at home, plus each drink costs much less than you’d pay for in a bar! The drinks are ice cold, refreshing, and delicious.
I think the classic margarita is my favorite. It tastes just like what you’d expect to get when ordering a classic margarita at your favorite Mexican restaurant.
Drinkworks pods are upcycled by Loop Industries and the Drinkworks Home Bar comes with a pre-paid bag ready to load up with the plastic pods so you can send them in totally free. I like to keep a little bowl to collect the plastic pods after use so I can package them all up together.
