Mixstix is the hottest new bartender in town and your new best friend.
What is Mixstix?
It’s basically a really cool stick with a number of uber cool lights that serves as a measuring guide to allow you or me(amateur bartenders), to mix up our choice of cocktails.
You can connect the Mixstix to your smart phone via Bluetooth and use an app to choose the recipe for your drink of the day and then insert the stick into the glass or shaker.
Each MixStik comes with 24 multicoloured LEDs. Once the user has selected a recipe using the app, the MixStik lights up.
Each section of colour relates to an ingredient and this is indicated by the app. The size of each coloured section is determined by the required measure of the relevant ingredient in the recipe. The relevant ingredient is poured in one at a time up to the designated lit up section of the stick.
Too good to be true?

So how does the super stick know which glass you are using?
All you have to do is calibrate the stick depending on the shaker or glass selected to ensure you get the most precise volumes.
What can you do with Mixstix?
With just your smartphone, you can make up to 5 drinks at a time. Also, it doesn’t matter if you don’t have all the ingredients in your fridge. The app will suggest you a cocktail depending on the ingredients you have.
Apart from being a super stick, it can also be used for a multitude of other fun – from drums to drinking games.
When and How Much?
The stick will cost you $39 but it’s not on sale yet so you’re in for a bit of a wait. The campaign on Kickstarter will launch on September 29th, so if you want a super cool bartending stick, pledge your money now!
