Drinkworks by Keurig Drinkmaker Home Bar Review

Like cocktails at home but without all the mixing and mess? The all new Drinkmaker by Keurig Drinkworks is a pod system for alcoholic drinks. Put in an alcoholic pod, press a button and in a minute, you have anything from Margaritas to Moscow Mules to Cider or Sangria.

Drinkworks Keurig Is Like A Robot Bartender

The Keurig Drinkworks home bar looks different than their coffee makers, but the basic concept is the same. The pod contains all the alcohol and mixers and the machine mixes, carbonates (some drinks), chills and then pours your drink right into your cup. Science!

Drinkworks by Keurig Drinkmaker Home Bar Review

Clearly the inventor of this is going to end up with a school named after him. Because this is nothing short of genius. The Drinkworks Keurig is for sale in just a few states so far. But, don’t let that stop you. Sign up and they will let you know when it comes to your state. The machine even comes with two CO2 canisters, cleaning tablets and a water filter.

Drinkworks by Keurig Drinkmaker Cost

The Drinkmaker machine retails for $399 (NOTE: $299 sale is still available) and the pods vary. But, most 4-packs of cocktail pods cost about $16. That’s $4 per drink. Good luck getting that in a bar for a quality mixed drink or even buying all the mixers needed to make these drinks at home.

When I first got a home that had a bar in the basement I went nuts. I spent probably $1000 setting it up. Even if you don’t buy it all at one time, a bottle or two each of vodka, whiskey, tequila, gin, mixers, bar making accessories, a juicer, simple syrup, shakers, some wine, beer and ciders to match the selection of Drinkworks pods will easily set you back a grand.

Here you can buy a variety pack and then stock up on just the drinks you want. Less mess, very little cleaning, much less shopping and you are always ready.
