The Somabar is an automatic cocktail creator


We use coffee to help us get through the day. Those shots of caffeine keep us awake and alert through a long day at work and dealing with things at home. Of course, when you finally get to a point where you can kick back and relax, you might want to change your beverage choice to something that will help you calm your mind. Alcohol is alright if consumed in moderate amounts, and can help take the tension off of your day. However, if you don’t like scotch, wine or whiskey, you may be out luck, as making a mixed drink is a nightmare.

Very few of us have studied to become a bartender, so mixing our own evening drink always has varying results. If you prefer a finely crafted cocktail for your evening drink but don’t want to have to pay a lot of money for someone else to do it, then the Somabar can help. This is something that will take one big purchase, but will pay for itself after extended use. This is very similar to the Arist that we saw recently, but is taking place of a bartender instead of coffee shop barista.

This machine can combine your specified amounts of liquor, mixers, bitters and syrups into the perfect drink. All you need to do is download the app, connect to the Somabar, fill the Soma Pods with your favorite ingredients, and enjoy your beverage of choice. These pods can be kept in the fridge for instantly chilled drinks, and are dishwasher safe. This setup will cost you $399, and it comes in a variety of different colors (not specified at this time).
