Planning an Oscars watch party? You can now make “perfectly crafted” cocktails in seconds with this cordless cocktail maker from Black + Decker.
If you love cocktails and entertaining guests, the bev by BLACK+DECKER Cordless Cocktail Maker might be right up your alley. This best-selling gadget creates “personalized” cocktails and mocktails in seconds thanks to an “easy-load” system and over 40 compatible Bartesian cocktail capsules.
The bev is an “amazing” edition to any kitchen and allows you to make “perfectly crafted cocktails at home,” according to one of dozens of positive reviews.
And it’s easy to use. Simply load the machine with the liquor or non-alcoholic spirits and the cocktail capsule of your choice, choose how strong you want the drink, press the “mix” button and enjoy.
The bev dispenses perfectly measured amounts of each ingredient for a perfectly mixed drink. It’s also equipped with LED lights at the base and a Party Mode button that makes the bottles light up.
Available at Amazon and BlackandDecker.com, the bev usually retails for $299.99, but it’s currently on sale at Amazon. Prime members get free delivery on millions of items, which means that if you order the bev today, you won’t have to pay extra to have it delivered by Oscar Sunday.
Black + Decker debuted its latest and soon-to-be-launched products — including the bev, the expansion of the kitchen wand family of attachments and the POWERSERIES Extreme MAX Cordless the SUMMITSERIES Select — during the Inspired Home Show, which kicked off in Chicago over the weekend and ends on Tuesday (March 7).
“Making life easier so you can enjoy more is what drives BLACK+DECKER’s product portfolio,” said Kendall Nohe, Global Director of Product Marketing at BLACK+DECKER. “We are focused on expanding and innovating our cleaning products as well as bringing cordless to other entertainment areas of your home. We’re excited to display how infusing BLACK+DECKER into your household can help make life easier and more joyful.”
