A Multitude of Drink Dispensers!

If you’re looking for drink dispensers, you may have a vague idea of what you want. The thing is, there are more than just your standard hexagonal glass beverage dispensers out there – oh yes. www.ClassicHostess.com has a range of drink dispensers from every style and era.

If you like retro novelties, they have light green, bell shaped drink dispensers which take me straight back to the 60’s and “I Dream of Jeanie.”

Or you may prefer something a bit more classic – of course they have options for such tastes. Small etched apothecary glass beverage dispensers are perfect for those small dinner parties or for any small batch of liquor or punch.

Cylindrical beverage dispensers are a medium between the retro and the classy; they are great for any style of kitchen and even include an ice chamber. Holding two gallons, this drink dispenser is ideal for keeping the kitchen stocked with fresh lemon water.

A white ceramic beverage dispenser is the perfect touch for an outdoor garden or backyard, and if you have a smoking room or a bar that needs a liquor dispenser or a specialty Nascar pump drink dispenser, your needs can be met by shopping www.ClassicHostess.com.

Got To Have Barware to Make A Proper Drink


I’m a bartender, which is one of those jobs that can easily extend into your life at home. I can incorporate my skill set to make delicious drinks even when I’m entertaining at home. While having alcohol is obviously important, another aspect of making drinks is barware.

If I don’t have a shaker, I may accidentally get martini on my walls. Straining is made easier with the proper tools, and having a stirrer always helps. Sectioning fruit for garnishes is pretty difficult with an ordinary knife, and what about ice? You gotta have an ice bucket because, as all good bartenders know, ice makes the drink.

Sometimes if I’m having a bunch of friends over and we’re having mixed drinks, I’ll use my barware to make a big batch of a specialty drink, like a dark and stormy. Then I’ll put it in a glass beverage dispenser and people can serve themselves. That way I can relax without having to be on my feet making drinks the whole time.

A bartender without the right tools is like a surgeon without a scalpel. So even if you’re not a bartender, having the right barware can send your drink popularity through the roof.

Beverage Dispensers Help Keep My Kitchen Clean

I’ve been a mom for a while now and there is nothing worse than seeing a bunch of rowdy kids run in to my kitchen after playing outside with dirty hands and runny noses making a big mess. Opening up the refrigerator, touching the juice containers – it’s no good. I tell the kids to wash their hands when they come in, but do they listen? No.

So no matter how many times I say it, they still come in and stand in front of the refrigerator, touching everything, leaving the fridge door open. I’ve had enough. I decided to get a beverage dispenser from www.ClassicHostess.com to pour some water or some juice in so that when they enter the kitchen, I have cups ready and they don’t have to dirty up the whole place.

And the nice thing about these beverage dispensers is that when the kids are at their friend’s houses and I’m entertaining for the night, they work really well to hold whatever it is the adults are drinking, whether it’s lemon water, or a nice punch I’ve concocted. These beverage dispensers really are a godsend – I always keep mine stocked full with whatever it is I’m thirsting for, and whatever it is I want the kids to drink.
