Keurig Drinkworks Home Bar has changed the way people are mixing drinks at home. The drink maker has teamed with Anheuser-Busch to refresh the countertop and refresh the way people are drinking. Now, a evening with friends can include an endless supply of single serve cocktails, beer and even wine, all at the touch of a button. The Drinkworks is a cocktail, beer, and cider maker that uses specifically created pods in a system that chills and carbonates appropriately for each drink. The machine recognizes each specific pod and adds the proper amount of water and carbonation. It is like having a private bartender at any home event or party. There is no need for stirring or shaking, either, as Drinkworks delivers a perfectly created drink in each glass, allowing everyone to have the exact drink they want, every time. Drinkworks even has its own app with instructions for set up and use and cleaning, as well as the ability to order new pods and learn all about the drinks.
Drinkworks Cocktail has its own Pod Selection for the perfect drink. Each one is crafted to create the perfect cocktail every time. The pods contain the specific spirit the drink needs, so a favorite old fashioned is complete with Kentucky bourbon and every margarita has the perfect Mexican agave Tequila. The pods have the highest quality liquor and natural flavors perfectly measured and delivered into the pod. Keurig and Anheuser-Busch have left no stone unturned when it comes to providing drink options for their Drinkworks. There are cocktails for every taste from a mojito to a Moscow mule and sangria. They even offer a Long Island Iced Tea pod complete with vodka, tequila, light rum, and gin. For those looking for something with a little more hops and malt, there are beer pods. From the British Bass to the German Becks and even a little Stella Artios Cidre thrown in for good measure, there is something for everyone.
