Air Cork The Wine Preserver

Until that time when it is deemed reasonable to produce wine in single-serving sizes (never), there needs to be a way to preserve leftover wine. Even if it’s out of thin air. Air Cork, that is.

Air Cork The Wine Preserver takes a stunningly simple idea and runs with it. Using a balloon to create a barrier from the air inside of half-empty (or half-full) bottles of wine, the intuitive wine gadget makes it easy to see why it would work. Just stick the balloon in the bottle, pump it full of air, and then release when it becomes time to enjoy the wine again. Here’s saying cheers to a fun idea that doesn’t look to be just full of hot air.

Sküüzi Drinking Apparel

Sküüzi - The Scandinavian Koozie!

Just because it is cold outside doesn’t have to mean the good times need stop flowing. Or the beer either for that matter. One way to stay warm on the outside while warming up on the inside is with the Sküüzi – The Scandinavian Koozie! (Emphasis theirs.)

As we all know (at least those of us over the age of 21) the volume tends to go up in direct proportion to the amount of beers that have been opened. Here’s to thinking that the designers have created a quality product and don’t happen to just be shouting. Cheers!
