Vacu Vin WineMaster Corkscrew

vacuvin_winemaster_corkscrew.jpgWe had to feature this product because we've never seen such a dire-looking corkscrew in our entire lives. It kind of reminds us of the Glaive from Krull meets the Road Warrior, in a way that would totally screw your corks, if you know what we mean. Who run Bartertown? Vacu Vin Winemaster Blaster run Bartertown!

Pinzon Stainless Steel Cocktail Bar Set

pinzon_bar_set.jpgWhen you're setting up a home bar, it's important to have all the right tools. Believe us, we spent years shaking our drinks in rinsed spaghetti sauce jars and stirring them with chopsticks. It works, but it doesn't exude that panache you're trying to go for, you know? When you're setting up your bar, don't be afraid to bust out a sweet cocktail set - they look good on display with your bottles, and you don't have to worry about a green pepper floating in your drink.

WMF Boston Cocktail Shaker

boston_cocktail_shaker.jpgIf you ask us, Boston shakers are the only way to fly when you're mixing drinks in your home bar. For some reason, they're just plain cooler than those ones with the strainers built in. Don't ask us why. They just are, OK? You can strain the drink into the glass pretty easily by just holding the two sections to leave the ice in the shaker, or you can buy one of those strainer things. You'll look just like a real bartender with some practice - trust us.

Vinturi Wine Aerator

vinturi_wine_aerator.jpgWe don't cover a lot of wine accessories here, leaving that to our compatriots over at Cheap Fun Wines, but we saw this gadget and just had to write about it. You always hear people talking about letting wine breathe, to improve the flavor and open up the bouquet. But seriously, who has time for all that? That's why we like the Vinturi wine aerator, which is basically scuba gear for your wine. Just put it over the glass, pour the wine through, and it pumps the air right in. No muss, no fuss, no waiting. We likes.

Simply hold the aerator oven a glass or decanter and pour the wine through. The Vinturi draws in and mixes the proper amount of air for the right amount of time, allowing your wine to breathe instantly. You?ll notice a better bouquet, enhanced flavors and smoother finish. It?s that fast and simple. The Vinturi is made in the USA of FDA approved plastic and is dishwasher safe. It comes in a beautiful gift box and includes a stand and travel pouch.

Twisted Cocktail Shaker

twist_cocktail_shaker.jpgWow, this is a cool looking shaker. You could put this on your bar or a bookshelf and no one would have any idea what it was until you started shaking it up and pouring cocktails out of it. It's like a ninja cocktail shaker. Hmm...apparently we've just come up with our new obsession. As Jeebus is our witness, we will find a ninja-themed cocktail shaker.

Grape Eco-Friendly Wine Rack

grape_wine_rack.jpgWe're always on the prowl for cool new wine racks, considering our current wine storage method is buying it by the case and leaving it in the box it comes in. Definitely functional, but maybe not the most stylish way to present our bottles. We've found a cool-looking and eco-friendly wine rack in the form of The Grape.

...is made of a very strongly, super-light material. There can be stored wine bottles, but also most champagne bottles will fit. There are many ways to pile up the Grape and can be made to a beautiful 'wall'. The Grape is packed in a nice carry trunk.

Fred Pick Your Nose Cups

pick_your_nose_cup.jpgWe're on a regular Fred kick after our Frozen Smiles post from last week, but how can we turn these down? We tried out these "Pick Your Nose" cups at a recent party, and goofy as they were, they added a whole layer of fun to our drinking. When you drink out of them, it makes you look like you have a goofy nose and/or mustache. That's all. We were pissing ourselves laughing over them, but that might have had something to do with the punch we were drinking.

24 cups, endless ironic laughs, from Fred Pick Your Nose

Frozen Smiles Ice Cube Tray

frozen_smiles_fred.jpgCall them gag gifts if you will, but there are some situations when you absolutely need a set of ice cubes shaped like false teeth. Whether it's grandpa's retirement party or a hockey player's birthday, face it - the situation's gonna come up. Luckily, the folks at Fred have you covered.

Watch Out for RoboBouncer

robotsecurity.JPGOK, so this isn't strictly liquor-related, but it does fall in line with all the booze-related 'bots we've covered in the past. This crazy mofo got sick of seeing the bad seeds sprouting around his bar, so he built a frickin' robot to chase them off. Awesome.

In downtown Atlanta, Rufus Terrill didn't like some of the folk who were hanging around his bar, O'Terrills, so he built himself a simplified robocop which he controls by remote. Consisting of an old meat smoker that he says still smells like chicken, a spotlight, an IR cam, a water cannon and a loudspeaker, the bot stands 4 feet tall and weighs 300 lbs.

Beer-Scented Candle from Hotwicks

BEER-2T.jpgTo be honest, we can't really remember ever lying awake nights, hoping someone would make a candle that smelled like beer as it burned. We can only imagine what our tossing and turning will be like now that we know it exists - from wishing we had a few. The company is dedicated to capturing the smells that mean the most to men, so you can install them in your man cave, your bathroom, or your dashboard (not recommended).

The other scents, you ask? Currently, they offer Beer, Campfire, Coffee, Grass (fresh-mown, not THC), Hippie (this is the one that'll make your place smell like a 1970s tour bus), Pigskin, Stripper, and...drum roll please...urinal cake.
