We’re all prone to griping about those $10 cocktails we abundantly purchase every weekend. “I could make this at home for a quarter of the cost” is usually the first thought to pop into our heads. But then we do make it at home, and it never tastes quite as good. At least it didn’t until now.
No, we’re not just getting you all hyped up for a cocktail recipe book – this is so much cooler. We’re talking about the Ozz, an interactive cocktail shaker that works via bluetooth with your smartphone to create perfect drinks every time.
Here’s how it works: The Ozz Device connects via Bluetooth with their complementary smartphone app. After you select a cocktail in the app it will display which ingredient to use first. As you pour, the glass rim will light up in a clockwise motion until the and LED light circle is complete. After your first ingredient is done, it tells you which ingredient to use next. And then just repeat this process until you’ve concocted a martini that 007 himself would be proud of.
If you’re thinking this sounds kind of familiar it might be because it’s a very similar concept to Drop, an interactive baking scale that works with your iPad. When Drop’s scale is connected to your device, all you have to do is add on a bowl and Drop will guide you through the process. Simply pour each ingredient in the bowl until the progress circle in the app is complete. If this is the tech-enhanced direction cooking, baking and bartending are headed, we are totally on board.
Ozz is launching its Kickstarter campaign at the end of this month. So if you’re ready to start throwing some legendary happy hours check back on Ozz’s website and donate!
