    Just bought one of these this week and waiting on it to arrive - Looks like a lot of fun and reviews on drinks look mostly positive as well..

    Anyone else have one?

    Never seen one of these things. Kinds of looks like the Nespresso concept applied to cocktails? How do they taste?

    More like a K cup for cocktails I think. If you want your drink "neat", does it come out chilled?

    There’s no place for ice and the unit doesn’t have a chiller.
    That’s not what this machine is all about.

    After a few weeks with it, I’m happy to report that it’s a good addition to the bar.. and totally get their business model now as I’ve ordered more and more pods along the way-

    Some of the drinks aren’t our favorite but the traditional ones are done really well.. the comments we get from friends are basically, ‘wow- this is better than I thought it would taste ‘ - and it’s truly the easy button of mixed drinks for the non purist types..

    I’m going to figure out how to make a bar menu from the cover art of the packages when I’ve got some time .. and hopefully will continue to have fun with it.. so thumbs up for anyone on the fence ..

    How much was it?
    A buddy of mine has a much more complicated machine that actually uses liquids. He got it as part of a crowdfunding thing. It’s complicated, requires a lot of cleaning. Interesting concept, but in reality it’s a pain in the butt. He likes it because he’s a tech geek, But it’s always running into problems

    It doesn’t chill the drink? So you pour liquor into a glass, then into the machine with the mix so it can drip into the same glass. Plus you get the flavor of the previous liquor. Why not just buy the capsules and a swizzle stick?

    Probably the same reason we didn't buy a Kia to get from point A to point B... Let's not try and be reasonable on a Ferrari forum... Its about the novelty and experience, not necessarily reasonableness.

    Yep, the machine is fun. I like that you don't even have to get the liquor bottles out, automatically dispenses and you choose your strength setting. Though I see no need for anything below strong. :)

    They should give you the machine to buy their capsules.. lol.. I've spent a fortune on all of the flavors so far.

    Spicy Margarita is my favorite.

    It’s fun and makes a good cocktail. I’ve had one for about a year.
