FROM COLD BREW TO COSMOPOLITANS, SCORE PROFESSIONAL QUALITY REFRESHERS THIS SPRING WITH ELEVATED BEVERAGE ESSENTIALS MADE FOR PERSONAL USE

BY EVAN MONROE

BARTESIAN HOME COCKTAIL MACHINE
Even the most talented home mixologist would need a full, elaborate bar to fulfill everyone’s order at cocktail hour, but not if the Bartesian has anything to say about it. You provide the water and spirits, and it provides everything else including individual cocktail capsules that contain the precise amount of bitters, extracts, and juice concentrates for each drink. Simply drop one in, add your spirit, and hit mix for a bar-quality beverage. $349

LIFEFUELS SMART NUTRITION BOTTLE
Meet your new hydration coach: an intelligent, rechargeable bottle made from anodized aluminum that measures water intake while adding shots of electrolytes, antioxidants, vitamins, and flavor via FuelPods. The vessel pairs with a companion app that allows users to mix and match the supplements (each pod is good for up to 90 beverages), and it also tracks your consumption, nutrients, and hydration progress. $179

ELEMENTAL BEVERAGE SNAPCHILLER
As the weather warms, spending an afternoon on the back porch with a glass of iced tea or coffee in hand sounds divine, but making these icy refreshments is a rather languid process. This nifty machine uses simple thermodynamics to chill even the most piping hot of beverages at a rate of 12 ounces per minute without oxidation, ice, or dilution. The stainless steel evaporator coil ensures uniformity, and users can control the consistency and temperature down to the degree. $6,000

Progress Capital SPREAD

LG HOMEBREW BEER MACHINE
Think of this one like a Keurig but for a different kind of brew. LG debuted its capsule-based home brewing system at CES in 2019, followed by a thriftier version last summer (capabilities remained the same but the price tag was cut in half). With the touch of a single button, home brewers can whip up five liters of suds, from hoppy West Coast IPAs to full-bodied English stouts. The magic is possible via single-use capsules filled with precise amounts of malt, yeast, hop oil, and flavoring. $1,660

WEBER WORKSHOPS EG-1 COFFEE GRINDER
Designed to bring the specialty café experience into the home, this sophisticated burr coffee grinder preps beans in single-use portions, and because it’s magnetically mounted, it’s notably devoid of screw seams that can collect old coffee. Compatible with both espresso and pour over beans, the sleek barista can be used for any style of java. $3,495

ARCTIC COLD BREW COFFEE SYSTEM
Bold, smooth, and distinctly less bitter than hotbrewed joe, cold brew has ballooned in popularity in specialty coffee shops in recent years, but brewing it at home can be a bit tricky and messy until now. This sleek system from Arctic began as a Kickstarter campaign and has since taken off, granting cold brew aficionados the ability to create their perfect recipes and keep a two-week supply in the refrigerator at all times. $50
