We've long felt we really deserved a shot chilling machine, and while many of the ones we've seen on the market are aimed solely at getting your Jagermeister cold, we've found a shot chiller that will fit most liquor bottles. Just pop in the bottle, add ice and salt, and wait a minute (literally, 60 seconds) for your bottle to be ice cold. We haven't tried it to see how effective it is, but we're adding it to our Christmas list.

We mentioned in our post yesterday that we've been on the market for a new wall-mounted bottle opener for the new crib. We're pretty sure we found it this time - not only does it open bottles, it's kind of arty-looking and could pass for something other than a tool for drinking beer. Plus, it's got the Celtic theme and the Liquor Wife is Irish...hell, maybe we could give it to her for Christmas! We'll get back to you on whether we actually have the stones for that.

We've been on a search for a wall-mounted bottle opener for our new Liquor Snob offices, and we've been striking out. Of course, we've been tempted by the 5-opener set we found a while back, but for some reason the Liquor Wife doesn't seem to think it's a great idea to have a bottle opener in the master bath. We think we've found the huckleberry, though - functional, cool-looking, and mounts right on the fridge, the source of all beer. We don't think we can do any better than that.

Every drinker worth his salt needs to have decanters. They're great when you're entertaining, or if you just feel like pretending you're in a movie from the 1940s. We've found four engraved glass decanters that would make a great gift as a set...or you can split them up among yourself and your three closest friends.
Each is engraved with the name of a different liquor (Bourbon, Rum, Vodka, and Whiskey) and we're a bit surprised they didn't go with Scotch. We're guessing whoever did the engraving thought you could put your scotch in the whiskey bottle, but there's the problem of that pesky extra "e." At least you can keep your Canadian or Irish whiskey in there.

You wouldn't believe the number of emails we get from people who think they have revolutionized drinking as we know it. Usually, what they've done is A) a slightly different take on something that exists already without making it any more useful, B) invented something that makes a simple process more complicated, or C) it's just plain stupid. There are, however, occasionally ideas that make us rub our chins and say "Hey, that's not a bad idea."
The SeatSaver is just such a thing. What is it? Well, it's basically a coaster with a hole in it (see A above, but with a use). But what do you gain by losing that little button of paper from your coaster? You get a multi-use coaster that lets you cover your drink or hang it off your bottle if you leave your seat. Just think of how many times you've had to ask for your seat back after a trip to the jukebox, or return from the pisser only to find the barback has dumped your half-full bottle of brew. Assuming everyone plays by the rules of engagement with these things, that's all a thing of the past. And that might just happen too - these guys have inked deals with all kinds of big distributors, so keep an eye out for them in a bar near you.

Everybody loves to play pool, right? Well, not everyone. We kind of hate it because we suck. But, can you imagine if you played pool and your opponent had to take a shot related to every ball you sink? That'd get us potting the ball all over the place.

If you'd asked us at this time yesterday what a Margarator was, we'd have shrugged our shoulders and mumbled something akin to "dunno." But today...today is a different day isn't it? And it turns out we
want desperately need one of these bad boys. If you're as confused as we were, think of the margarator as the spiritual kid sister of the Kegerator - but instead of chilling your draft beer it only exists to have cool, refreshing margaritas and other icy drinks at your fingertips at all times.
We want to buy two and use one for a margarator and the other for a hurricanator. Or maybe we'll get one of those diesel multi-pitcher ones. Possibilities are endless. Head on over to Margarators.com to live the dream for yourself.
