Football Cocktail Shaker: Go Long Into Drunkenness

footballcocktailshaker.jpgThis little gizmo might seem a bit off-season, but just think about how popular you'll be this fall when you hit your friends with a long bomb and get them blitzed. Did we just actually type that sentence? Oh, and you can actually lock the halves together and throw the thing, full of booze, across the room. We can't see that ever being a bad idea.

Whiskey Stones for the Win

whiskey_stones_glass.jpgIf you're ready to really take your whiskey on the rocks, you might want to think about getting yourself some Whiskey Stones. It seems like years ago that we covered sippin' on the rocks, a snooty-seeming product from Scotland, but these newest whiskey rocks are from a bit closer to home - our native state of Vermont. Stick 'em in the freezer and plop 'em in your drink to get the chilling effect of ice without watering it down.

A win no matter how you tally it, and we're thinking Dad might want some for Father's Day.


(Thanks Tom and Christina)

Barack Obama Shot Glass

barack_obama_shot_glass.jpgOur (sort of) new president is still capturing the hearts and minds of millions of Americans. If you don't believe us, just check out Bad Paintings of Barack Obama. What have you done lately to prove that kind of devotion? Here's your chance - drink liquor out of the back of his head.

Beer Blaster Squirt Gun...For Beer

beer_blaster_blue.jpgIn these down economic times, we're all looking for a way to throw away money. Wait...that doesn't sound right. Let's try that again.

In these down economic times, we're all looking for a way to spend twenty or thirty bucks on a contraption designed mainly to waste beer. No, that still doesn't sound right. Third try is a charm.

Hey everyone, check out this crazy beer squirt gun! It costs twenty bucks ($30 if you throw in the holster) and according to their video it's designed to squirt beer in your friends' ears! Sticky, annoying, AND expensive!

Screw it. Here's a video of the thing in action. It's got a girl in it.

Update: Even if you're not into buying this to do the equivalent of shaking up a beer and pouring it out, on rewatching the video we noticed it's got a bottle opener on it. Value!

Drunk Coasters: From Sober to Hung Over

drunk_coasters.jpgWe found these glass coasters that follow the drunkard's journey, from Sober (boring) through Tipsy, Plastered, Drunk, and Shit-Faced, until the all-too-familiar state of Hung Over (also boring, unless you start drinking again). Your friends can self-select where they'd like to end up after a night in front of your bar, or you can just use them to gauge your own progress while you drink alone.

Big Savings on Spirit Sippers

spirit_sippers_set.jpgA while back we told you about Spirit Sippers tasting glasses for everything from rum to whisk(e)y. These things are pretty much our official tasting paraphernalia, and we use them every chance we get when we're reviewing liquors. They definitely get the Liquor Snob stamp of approval, for whatever that's worth.

Now, in honor of St. Patrick's Day, the fine folks at Spirit Sippers are offering a great deal so you can sip in style. They're reduced the prices on their Essential Taster's Set (four glasses - Wide Mouth for Bourbons, the Glencairn for Scotch, the Flare for Rum, and the Tulip for Tequila) by 25% so you can pick them all up for around thirty bucks. Now that's a St. Patrick's Day sale we can really get behind.

More info and pick up your Essential Taster's Set at Spirit Sippers

Lady Absinthe Fountain

lady_absinthe_fountain.jpgOK, we know it's tough times out there, but we've found something we think might convince us to loosen the purse strings. How can you go wrong with an absinthe fountain, four glasses, three spoons and a grill? If you drink enough absinthe you'll forget about the cake you dropped on it, and if push comes to shove you can worship it as some kind of heathen idol. It's what we call a win/win.

Pete the Penguin Cocktail Shaker

penguin_shaker.jpgWe're kind of delirious right now. We found this on Amazon. All we can say is we wish we had a category called WTF.

The Jigger Cube

jigger_cube.pngIf you're anything like us you use your mix cocktails often enough that you need your tools to be more functional than clever. However, sometimes we run across an item that strikes a chord with us for both form and function, and today's addition to that list is the Jigger Cube. A 3" aluminum cube that lets you measure liquids six ways from Sunday (literally, with .5, .75, 1.0, 1.5, 1.75, 2.0, and 2.25 ounce measurements), and looks badass to boot.

As far as we can tell the only downside is can see ourselves making "Gleaming the Cube" references every single time we mixed a drink.

Beertender Home Beer Tap System

heineken_beertender.jpgWe're pretty sure by now you've seen those Heineken beer kegs in pretty much every store from here to Amsterdam. If you've had the hankering to give them a try but were waiting for the perfect opportunity, here's your chance. Pick up the Heineken Beertender, stick one of those little mini-keggy-things in there, and drink up. Hey, after a couple of 'em it'll end up cheaper than going out, so that's great as long as you really like Heineken.

BeerTender from Heineken and Krups B90

Note: The B90 model listed above only has one temperature setting of 38 degrees. If you want more temperature settings, check out the B95 Model
