201. Bright Idea: Drink Cooler March 7, 2007Posted by Matt Fleming, PsyD in Food and Drink, Product.
Only to be used at cocktail parties for the super-rich and/or pretentious: the Piet Hein Drink Cooler. $30 gets you one polished stainless-steel ball filled with a substance that retains and maintains the chill. Just prepare it in the freezer for an hour, and your drink stays cold and undiluted.
But be careful. Don’t try too hard to get the last sip of your drink, or else you may end up bruising your lip or chipping a tooth.
I am sure they can come up with a cheaper version (to even put in a glass of beer). Until then, I will continue to enjoy my ice, which I find fun to chew on after the drink is done. Buy it HERE (at ThinkGeek.com).
