Happy hour

The Barsys Automated Cocktail Maker quickly makes a wide variety of drinks. You supply the alcohol and the mixers, then the Barsys app will show you a large list of recipes you can make with the push of a button. 

You can buy Barsys now for $1,050 from the company's site.

Your drinks

Since you supply the alcohol, you can make sure the cocktails are suited to your tastes. Insert a specialized cork into your bottles and fit up to five of them in the machine's nozzles along the top.

Get pouring

Once everything is in place, you simply select the drink you want in the Barsys app for iOS and Android and hit "make." The app sends your command to the machine through Bluetooth.

Barsys springs into action and pours the proper proportions. The lights on the machine turn green when your drink is ready.

Searching recipes

You can also browse the Barsys library of recipes in the app, so you can see the ingredients you need to make drinks that sound appealing.

Note that Barsys can't add extras like a garnish or a dash of bitters.

Barsys is big and heavy, but the lights make it look good in a bar setting.
