12 Gauge shot glasses

A twenty will get you the honor of four “12 Gauge Shot Glasses” just begging to have a small blasting cap wired into the bottom for remote detonation. Shipping is from the U.K., so expect it to sting like rock … Continue reading

How best to turn fruit into shot glasses without a specialized tool?

Great idea for a spring fling, but surely this can be done more simply than with a single-purpose $13 (plus shipping) “ShotCarver”. A piece of steel conduit? An empty pill bottle? [via Doug Aamoth]

Hold Your Heads Up High: You’ll never drink alone with the Octopus Tap

The “Octopus Tap” is a standard push-powered keg tap with only half-an-octopus’ worth of spouts attached. Perfect for those like me who drink alone but wish they could fill their cups four times as fast. The basic Octopus Tap costs … Continue reading

Agwa De Bolivia, coca leaf and herb liqueur

Margarator MSB-585: It’s a fuckin’ blender

The “Margarator” is a $110 blender with a spout on the front, designed to make margaritas and other frozen drinks — and only that. While I’m sure it pulverizes ice with the best blenders, I’m a little taken aback that … Continue reading

Evolution Mobile Bar folds up for boozing on the run

When we were 18 or so, my buddy Mike and I stumbled onto a bit of fried gold: instead of hosting our own parties — inevitably money-losing affairs with the risk of parental seizure — we’d host parties for others. … Continue reading
