Some people love beer, some are wine connoisseurs, some can't live without their hard seltzers, and others like hard liquor on the rocks (kudos to you) — well, I love my cocktails. They make me feel like I'm on vacation or at a swanky bar, even if it's just for a moment in my head. Craft cocktails are yummy and flavorful, but honestly, they are hard to make at home and messy. Mixology is no joke; even if you have the skills, you might not have the right ingredients readily available. That's why when I found out about the Bartesian Premium Cocktail Maker, I had to try it out. Let me tell you, this is one of the coolest gadgets I've ever tried, and I need another one. The Bartesian is worth the hype and is the perfect addition for a hot girl summer!

The Bartesian is very user-friendly and has a simple setup. Create some counter space and place the machine in its designated spot near an outlet. Fill the five spirit containers according to the labels with the spirit brand of your choice. Since there are only four spots, the machine will let you swap out the gin and rum containers. In fact, it reminds you to swap out the gin and the rum containers when making cocktails that require those bases. Once you rinse out and fill the back container with water, your Bartesian is ready. It takes longer to decide your craft cocktail of choice than for the machine to create it.
