Happy Hour At Home

 

For years, we’ve rushed out of the office at 6pm to make it to our favorite bar or restaurant for $4 glasses of wine, affordable cocktails and happy hour required dishes – like $1 oysters on the half-shell! Happy Hour is the perfect excuse to socialize over good drinks and light bites after a long day.

Happy hour is an occasion everyone can get behind, and we love the idea of bringing happy hour home and avoiding that overcrowded bar. If the Queen of England can enjoy “cocktail hour” at home, so can you!

With a little help from Plum, you’ll be ready to host a happy hour in just a few minutes.

Plum is this season’s oenophile status symbol. Plum opens, chills, and dispenses up to two different 750 ml bottles of wine at a time. Drop any bottle of wine into this magic wine robot, and the machine will automatically identify the wine, set the perfect serving temperature, cool each bottle individually and extract the wine one glass at a time.

Not only does Plum have useful tools to help preserve wine, but it’s also beautifully designed. It’s sleek black exterior and bright touchscreen help it fit right in amongst the other high-tech devices in your home.

Once you have a Plum, hosting happy hour is a breeze. With self-serve pours ranging from 1 oz. tasters to 6 oz. glasses, all you’ll need are some simple snacks. May we suggest the following pairings?
