Summer is nearly upon us and that means spending more time outside, firing up the grill and of course, making some fancy summer cocktails. As a bartender I don't have to search far in my memory bank for a good recipe, but for many people, mixology may be out the picture at most parties. An easy solution for that problem is a connected accessory that's been around for a while now but you may not have heard of — the Perfect Drink Smart Bartending Scale.
With this fancy contraption you'll get a small scale that connects to your iPhone or iPad (Android support is coming later this year). Simply choose your drink from the list within the app, put your glass on the scale and go to work. Perfect Drink measures your pours by weight, so it knows exactly how much of each ingredient you're adding. It tells you when to stop, and even corrects things should you have a heavy hand. You can search drinks based on what ingredients you have available, and even add your own to the app.
If your bartending skills aren't the greatest, this may be just what you need for your next party. It's a great way to make hundreds of awesome drinks, though if you're making a bunch it might get a bit tedious. It's still a very cool way to flaunt your connected lifestyle to your friends though.
The Perfect Drink Smart Bartending Scale is available now for $69.99.
