We’ve had a lot of things put in our drinks when we weren’t looking. Gummi worms. Laxatives. Spit from the waitress tired of hearing our cocktail order in impossible-to-screw-up detail.
You’d think “Belvedere on the Rocks, only three rocks (six if they’re round), a squeeze of lemon, a squeeze of lime, neither fruit left in the glass, the edge of the glass rimmed with the juice of a fresh orange slice and just a whisper of club soda” would be so easy to follow that she’d give us a tip for making her life so easy. But noooo, that would just make too much sense.
Well, now there’s something you’re all going to want to put in your glass. It’s one of the latest rages direct from Japan. And with the world’s thoughts turning to this country the past few weeks, we can think of no better way to show our support than by purchasing products originating from Kyoto. Shopping fixes everything!
The Binchotan Charcoal Cocktail Stirrer is just one of many Japanese charcoal products carried at wafu-living.com, a site with tons of cool Japanese products. The benefit of this stirrer is that it absorbs all the impurities in your drink, whether it’s a cocktail, water or tea. This is like a miracle to us! We can finally order those cheap well drinks and with a flick of our Binchotan, turn it into a top-shelf classic for a fifth the price.
Best of all, they’re reusable. Just be careful, though, because they’re actually very fragile.
Just like our ego when the cocktail waitress starts ignoring us.
Yes, we have a heart
