Keurig and Anheuser-Busch just launched a new product and it's just what every hostess needs. The Drinkworks Home Bar takes the idea of the successful coffee pod machine and applies it to premixed cocktails. The new product is very similar to a Keurig, except instead of a warm cup of coffee, you get a refreshing mixed, alcoholic drink.
It's pretty high tech, offering an iOS app that can control the appliance and assist in pod refill orders. The Home Bar costs $299 and each cocktail pod costs $4. The launch will include 15 different cocktails including a Moscow mule, margarita, mojito, and Long Island iced tea, according to The Verge. The drinks can be made in three different sizes as well: 3.9 ounces, 6.5 ounces and 8.1 ounces.
The machine and beverage pods are initially only launching in St. Louis, Missouri, for now, and has been available to pre-order online through Drinkworks’ website and a few other select retailers beginning on Nov. 19.
We love Keurig machines because they're so quick and easy to use. Not only do a few of our editors have their coffee makers in their homes, but we also use the K-select machine in our office — which lets us make strong brew or regular coffee. With the holiday season fast approaching, a Keurig K-select would be a great gift for any coffee lover. Plus, it's on sale for Black Friday right now.
