Drinkworks Home Bar Classic makes cocktails without taking much shelf space

If you’ve ever had a lot of guests over and tried to make custom cocktails for everyone, you know exactly how hectic (and messy) bartending can be. The Drinkworks Home Bar Classic simplifies the process of making drinks for yourself and for guests to just a few touches of a button. It improves on the previous version of the Home Bar by providing the same benefits with a smaller footprint.

Its smaller size means it’s portable enough to take with you on the go, whether you’re trying to serve up drinks at a party at home or at a backyard barbecue. It doesn’t take much to set up the device. Once you do, you can make more than 40 different cocktails with ease. Drinkworks uses pre-made pods to create its cocktails.

Combined with a bit of water, you have bar-quality drinks in seconds. The pods contain everything needed for the drinks, including natural and artificial flavors. The Drinkworks Home Bar Classic can even create carbonated beverages.

The Drinkworks Home Bar Classic is $300 and available for preorder now, with shipping scheduled to start in November. There’s also the original version, now called the Drinkworks Home Bar Pro, which expands on the basic functionality offered by the Classic with built-in refrigeration, a digital touch display, an integrated UV sanitation system, and more. This model is available for $350 through and other select retailers.

The Drinkworks Home Bar Pro is the go-to option for people that want a much more expansive home cocktail experience. Combined with the Drinkworks app, the Home Bar Pro is a lot like a personal bartender. The app can be used to reorder pods, access information about your drink maker, buy new accessories, and more. It also reminds you when it’s time to replace the filter, update the software, and more.

Even if you’re an old hand at making your favorite cocktails, sometimes you just want something with no muss and no fuss. The Drinkworks Home Bar Classic makes it easy to get your hands on your favorite drink with minimal effort — perfect for those long days when you just want to kick back and relax.

Drinkworks is shutting down, reimbursing customers
Drinkworks Home Bar by Keurig Press Shots 2 of 5

In an era where it seems more and more of us want fancy food, drinks, and services at home -- and instantly -- it may come as a shock that Drinkworks is shutting down operations.

Drinkworks is a ready-made bartending machine that’s able to deliver custom cocktails at the push of a button. Despite the apparent ease of having a countertop mixologist, Drinkworks says it will no longer be selling new bar machines, and it will stop producing drink pods too, though it will continue to sell off stock on its website and through retailers until the supplies are gone.

Small home gyms are more possible than ever before thanks to smart gym equipment. The right devices can help you stay in shape (and work off any holiday pounds you pick up).
What's the minimum size for a home gym?
While you can't properly work out in a closet, you don't need an entire garage to make a home gym, either. Small home gyms can be built in as little as 50 square feet of space or in a room that's around 7 by 8 feet -- the size of a smaller bedroom, for example.
