11:00 AM on May 6, 2024

Craft cocktails are complicated. You need a full shelf of liquors, mixers, garnishes and glassware, plus a well-trained and knowledgeable bartender. 55306-18

Or, you could just get the Bartesian Professional Cocktail Machine 

This sleek, intuitive cocktail maker combines all-natural flavoring, spirits and water to make premium cocktails in 30 seconds. Just select the desired strength, insert a cocktail capsule, and set the indicated glass in place. Bartesian Professional crafts a perfect drink, every time. 

Because Bartesian Professional makes cocktail mixing so easy—and has such a small footprint—it opens up a world of new revenue-generating possibilities. See it yourself with Bartesian Profitability Calculator.

Here are just a few of the ways savvy business owners can put Bartesian Professional to work.

Festivals, concerts and sporting events

Speed of service is the biggest obstacle to serving craft cocktails at concerts and events. Bartesian Professional makes drinks so quickly that your staff won’t be fazed by even the longest line. Drinks are consistent, portions are precise, and it only takes 30 seconds to make a drink. Plus, Bartesian Professional dispenses alcohol first and water last, so you can go from margarita to Moscow mule without transferring flavors.   

Cocktail recommendations: 

  • Spicy Margarita 
  • Mango Margarita 
  • Long Island Iced Tea

Day Spas and Salons

Many spas already serve a glass of sparkling wine or rosé to customers who request it. Bartesian Professional can expand the drink offerings to include cocktails or mocktails — a fresh option that will delight customers. Offer one complimentary refreshment, or charge customers for their drinks to add a new revenue line. “Any employee can toss a pod in the machine and press a button for a professional quality drink,” one nail salon client says. “It’s like having a bartender at all times.” 

Cocktail recommendations: 

  • Cosmopolitan 
  • Ginger Peach Iced Tea (with or without vodka) 
  • Pomegranate Margarita 

Shops and boutiques

Offering a special shopping night or product launch with cocktails is a sure-fire way to get customers in the door. The Bartesian Professional cocktail machine provides speedy service with just one operator, so customers can spend more time browsing. Seasonal Bartesian cocktail capsules fit holiday themes, such as the Candyman Margarita for Halloween or the Apple Pie for fall. 

Cocktail recommendations: 

  • Great Gatsby (gin, grapefruit, elderflower) 
  • Espresso Martini 
  • Hemingway Daiquiri (grapefruit, citrus lime and maraschino) 

Swimming pools

One of the best things about summer is a cold drink by the pool. Bartesian Professional elevates the experience with high-end tropical drinks, from mai tais to margaritas. Adding cocktail service can be a huge draw, especially if your pool sells day passes. Just make sure strict safety precautions are in place when serving drinks poolside. These may include serving limits, setting drink strength to “light,” and serving drinks in plastic only (never glass).  

Cocktail recommendations: 

  • Hurricane 
  • Jungle Bird (pineapple juice, lime and bitters) 
  • Rum Breeze 

Sports clubs and gyms

Drinking and socializing after a good workout is becoming more and more popular. Once, only canned or bottled drinks were feasible; now, Bartesian Professional adds fresh drinks to the menu. On the golf course, at the pickleball complex, or at the gym, Bartesian cocktails are a perfect match for health-minded customers. Bartesian flavor capsules contain natural juices, bitters, and extract concentrates, without artificial colors, fructose, and corn syrups. Low-calorie options are available, and any drink can be made alcohol-free.  

Cocktail recommendations: 

  • Low-cal Cosmopolitan 
  • Low-cal Margarita 
  • Pineapple Sage Vodka Still (low-calorie cocktail with sweet coconut and pineapple) 

 Senior living communities

Around 59% of Americans aged 55 and up drink alcohol. For this reason, many senior communities are installing an on-site bar as a social hub — but finding staff to pour drinks can be a challenge. Enter Bartesian Professional! 

Cocktail recommendations: 

  • Whiskey Sour 
  • Sidecar 
  • White Sangria 

Craft distilleries

Some people love tasting the nuances of a lovingly made whiskey or tequila. Some people just want a delicious mixed drink. Keep everyone happy with Bartesian Professional: the easy way for distilleries to feature their spirits in cocktails with a minimum of effort.   

Cocktail recommendations: 

  • Jalapeño Lime Shrub (tequila, lime, apple cider vinegar) 
  • Whiskey Smash (mint, lemon, whiskey) 
  • Rum Swizzle (pineapple, citrus, triple sec, falernum, and bitters) 

One last note: Before installing Bartesian Professional, check your local laws and regulations so you know who is legally allowed to operate it and if any license is required.
