The "Gin Wheel": Step Up Your At-Home Cocktail Game
Ok so it's a little bit over the top but we're all for bringing back some formality to dinner parties and get-togethers. What happened to the good old days when people pulled out the fine china with a group of close friends and drank real cocktails instead of cold brews out of a can? We should bring that stuff back!
But as anyone who's ever attempted to host such a fancy shindig knows, having the right tools like half the battle. And this lazy susan for booze hounds definitely falls in the category of "the right tools."
Assuming you've got $500 sitting around to invest in household wares, you can pre-order your "Bombay Sapphire East Gin Wheel" online. In addition to being totally functional (insomuch as an appliance dedicated to the making of one, specific type of cocktail is "totally functional") the gin wheel's design comes from internationally acclaimed design firm, AvroKO, who've designed quite a few opulent eateries including Lavo at the Palazzo in Las Vegas.
The solid walnut gin wheel comes with every thing you'd need to impress the pants of any gin and tonic lover you can find. It comes with four specialty gin and tonic glasses, four Bombay Sapphire branded wood coasters, stainless steel ice tongs, a Zhen Japanese 3.5" paring knife, 2 oz/1oz jigger and an 11" stirring spoon. The G&T kit also comes a bottle of Bombay Sapphire East gin, which is infused with Thai lemongrass and Vietnamese Black Peppercorn.
But what makes it kind of awesome is the hidden alcoves that hold all that fancy cocktail stuff. So now you'll not only look cool while using your jigger, but also as you put it away.
And although the product description does't explicitly say, we're guessing you could also just the wheel to make cocktails similar to a G&T. Like, say, a vodka tonic. But we're not making any promises.
Regardless, it will look damn good.
