Waterford Barware Trunk

We've been looking for something to class up our bar area. We may not be able to go quite as far as this Waterford Barware trunk, but if we had the ducats we'd get there in a heartbeat. This bad boy will cost you, but between the brass latches, leather trim, and rosewood interior lies a huge collection of "...the world's finest crystal barware, wine tasting stemware, sterling silver bar tools and elegant canape plate." Can't go wrong with that.

Fire Truck Bar Set

The firetruck bar set - because sometimes you need to extinguish your thirst instead of just quenching it. Includes a shaker, a jigger, a corkscrew, a bottle opener, and of course - a fire truck-shaped holder. You don't even have to be a fireman to proudly display it - all you need is the four alarm fire in your belly for tying one on.

The Bottle Popper

bottle-popper.jpgDid you ever notice it's kind of a pain in the ass to open beers? We're not just talking about the kind you need an opener for - the "easy open" screwtops can be tough too. It's not usually too bad at first, but after 10 or 15 beers we start to tear our soft little hands. We've been known to put the bottle under our shirt and use the fabric to help ease the pain, but the fabric doesn't do too well after said 10 or 15 beers either.

That's why we like the new product we just discovered, the Bottle Popper - it works with both standard and twist-off caps. Plus it looks so cool to use you don't have to face the mockery of asking your girlfriend to help you twist open your beer because your palms are bleeding. We'll be getting one soon to see if it lives up to our hopes and dreams.

Home Shot Chiller Machine

It's official - there is no reason for you not to have chilled Jager shots in your house at all times. We're not about that bottle in the freezer, either. We're talking about the full-on Jager chiller you see in your favorite bar - the one that hangs from the wall? Now you can have three of them for less than the price of an iPhone! Or you could get just one - wuss.

Either way, thank you Skymall ! [via Uncrate]

Lego Ice Cube Tray

Ice cubes. Shaped like Legos. We really don't have much more to say on the subject. You can't actually snap them together, but you could build some damn good cocktails we're guessing, and get some oohs and aahs out of your friends.

Tropics Ceramic Juicer

We got a kick out of this ceramic juicer we found over on Popgadget, so we thought we'd share it with you. It's got a distinctive look for a juicer, with a little teapot vibe going on, but that's not the cool part. It's got a cool design that lets you flip the juicer part over and put a lid on it for storage. That's not the cool part either.

The cool part is it was designed in Cuba, and it's not available for sale because of the embargo. We're not recommending anything, but we have to say nothing would make a drink taste better than some black market juice.

Pac-Man Shot Glasses

There are certain things you'd like to get, and there are certain things you have to get. We think a set of six Pac-Man glasses featuring the titular hero and all his ghosty nemeses falls into that second category. Just imagine - you can set up shots of Jager all over your house like Power Pellets. If you're going to do it, do it soon, however, because this is a limited edition series of only 2,500 sets.

MyFountain Virtual Bartender

Leave it to Gizmodo to find yet another technological wonder we just have to install in our home. This one looks like it'll give all the convenience of a robot bartender without the fear it'll go all HAL 9000 on you - or we hope so, at least.

Storing 16 different chilled liquids, the MyFountain can simply dispense a brew, or mix perfectly portioned drinks at the touch of a few buttons. Through an LCD touchscreen, users can select their ingredients and measurements of choice, or allow the MyFountain to make suggestions based upon the (vile, evil, horrid) liquids on hand.
at Digital Beverages; plus read more at Gizmodo while we try to scrape together the $2,500 to buy one.

Inflatable Floating Cooler and/or Bar

Oh, man, this thing is like our Holy Grail - we just moved into a house with a pool and we've been talking about how we should get something that'll float in there and keep our drinks cool. Ask and ye shall receive in the form of the Inflatable Bar from Brando. It's got everything - a central ice chest type thing, 6 cup holders, the works.

And we're not just seeing it for the pool - can you imagine tubing down a river with this tied to your (non-drinking hand) wrist? Let's just say you can expect to see us very waterlogged and sunburned come the end of August.

Get Your Icerocks Off

One of the best pieces of advice we ever got about mixing drinks was about the unrecognized workhorse of the cocktail world - the ice. We were told that the ice often makes the drink, and we can understand that - do you want your Mojito to taste like like the coffee can of bacon fat you store next to your cube tray?

That's where ICEROCKS from the Water Bank of America (WBOA) come in. This specially-packaged imported French water should taste much better than whatever's coming out of your faucet or garden hose. At $5-$6 for .75L worth of water it's fairly spendy, but can you put a price on taste?

via Intoxicated Zodiac and Daily Candy

PS - If you haven't checked out the Intoxicated Zodiac blog yet, do yourself a favor and do it, especially if you're into astrology. Gwen has a knack for matching your horoscope with your cocktail, and her origin story is way better than ours.
