Cocktails and Alcohol in the Digital Ages

Frankly, I am looking forward to all of what fall promises including the social whirl and other activities that follow during the holidays. What that means to me is indoor entertaining and the wonderful warmth of friends and families. An integral component is often alcoholic beverages for the adults.

Obviously this column is not a piece from the Food Network, HGTV or the Travel Channel. Rather, the focus is on how the digital era has changed (and maybe even improved) one aspect of entertaining: bartending. There are many products out there in pricing ranging from $24.98 to over $5000. Naturally, their capabilities and ensuing results vary tremendously.
