Synthohol Dispenser (SD)

While many people are have noticed the change in food preparation and storage there have also been made in the alcoholic beverage industry. With the reduced size of refrigerators and people being used to the convenience and speed of SPUs it was only natural to introduce these technologies to the home bar. The Synthohol Dispenser works by taking an alcohol base and mixing it with various flavor kits to produce drinks similar in alcohol content and flavor to conventional adult beverages. All SDs filter and add tap water as filler and have built in Carbonators that allows for the insertion of CO2 into drinks to make sodas, beers or sparkling wines.(It extracts CO2 for the air and does not need replacing.)

Synthohol Shot Capacity: This is the amount of synthohol (150 proof alcohol base) the machine can store. One shot can make one shot of liquor, one beer or one glass of wine.

Nope no idea...

Its funny to see what people really love and what stuff that I get a very lukewarm response to. I think the SPU was my most popular item to date. (Part of me wishes it was some of my earlier critters, but what are you going to do.)

I was thinking of adding that to the Barkeep (at least to add olives, onions and cherries). However I just decided the bartender would add it or that there would be a flavor addition without putting in the actual item. They have to do something to earn their tip. grinbig.gif
