Bartenders can be pretty pricy, which is why only the fancy parties have them. But with the new Kickstarter campaign, Monsieur, you don’t have to fork over lots of cash every time you have a party. Monsieur is an artificially intelligent robotic bartender that always serves you the perfect drink and will learn your personal taste preferences and suggest you new ones. It has learned thousands of drinks and can expertly craft them at a touch of a button. Just use the touchscreen to browse through the cocktail list with beautiful pictures and interesting information about each drink. The precision of its software and pumps allows features like the strength slider: choose ‘normal’ or ‘lightweight’ or ‘boss’. Over time, Monsieur will learn your taste to pre-adjust your drinks so you don’t have to. Use the “Surprise Me” option to try something new and it will make you scrumptious drink that will probably be your new favorite drink.
But you can also customize your Monsieur by downloading a theme package. Monsieur comes pre-loaded with 12 different theme packages each containing about 25 drinks in each theme. Theme packages include: Modern, Tiki Bar, Sports Bar, Cigar Bar, Irish Pub, Cinco De Mayo, Classic, Girl’s Night Out, Happy Holidays, Mardi Gras, Non-Alcoholic, Modern.With automatic refill delivery, the device can send you a grocery list or you can enable the auto refill option, that notifies your local liquor store to schedule a delivery (location specific) via SMS or email. And its mobile app allows you to order your drink from anywhere and you can share what you thought of the drink with all of your friends on social media. Get the Monsieur Minis with four pumps by pledging $1,499 and the bigger one with eight pumps for $2,299 or more.
