It鈥檚 time to step up your dinner party hostess duties once and for all. While you may not feel like a muddling pro eager to mix up a mojito聽or wine-selective enough to create an unforgettable聽sangria pitcher, sticking聽with the trusty six-pack聽or boxed wine聽is getting a tad stale. The time has come to impress your friends with expertly crafted cocktails, whether you聽actually聽made 鈥檈m or a machine did. Step aside, coffee because there鈥檚 a new capsule-based machine in town, and it鈥檚 all about the afternoon delights.

Bartesian

Bartesian聽dubs itself as 鈥渢he first capsule-based cocktail machine.鈥 Essentially what that means is it鈥檒l be your go-to Keurig-like countertop device聽once 5pm rolls around daily.聽Sorry,聽soda,聽you鈥檙e old news. The machine ($249 early-bird price, regularly $299; 12 capsules for $20) just launched its Kickstarter campaign聽for those interested in making + consuming cocktails without all the essential tools and ingredients聽required to craft that perfect adult bev.

After filling up its reservoirs (similar to SOMABAR) with liquor staples gin, vodka, rum and tequila, all聽you have to do to produce a single serving from this cocktail creator聽is聽insert your flavor capsule of choice, select how strong you want the drink and get ready to indulge in an ice cold beverage聽before you can even finish a pre-drink shot ;)

Bartesian

Oh, and those capsules? They won鈥檛 be living聽in聽landfills for all eternity. Creator Bryan Fedorak聽revealed to us that they鈥檙e recyclable. 鈥淲e really didn鈥檛 want to destroy the world while making this!鈥 he explained.聽The聽quality is high all around for Bartesian; the crew聽worked with mixologists, food scientists, and 鈥渃ocktailistas鈥 to make sure the drinks taste amazing聽and not like artificial, sugar-filled pre-mixes already out there.

Bartesian

At launch, the machine will be able to concoct six expertly crafted drinks 鈥 with plenty more to come, we鈥檙e sure. From classics like a聽cosmo, margarita or sex on the beach to Bartesian signatures Zest Martini, Bartesian Breeze, and Uptown Rocks, the party will be getting started with聽the click of a button.
