Get Someone’s Mouth On Uranus With This Solar System Drinking Set

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have your friends fill up Uranus? Dream no more.

Firebox continues to release banger after cosmic banger with their products, only this time they call out to the astronaut in all of us.Screen Shot 2016-03-09 at 10.43.07 AM

This Solar System drinking set comes equipped with all 9 planets, although it includes Pluto, which is now being considered a dwarf planet and not cool enough to hang out with the other planets.

Each glass in the set comes with detailed depictions of each planet’s surface, with a particular emphasis (obviously) on the earth glass.

This set comes with 10 glasses total, with eight of them holding 10 oz. (Mercury through Neptune), a Sun glass at 16 oz., then finally a large shot glass of Pluto that will hold 4 oz.

These Shot Glasses Have Been Shot, And It’s Badass

A father and son duo from Wisconsin recently began creating shot glasses that really bring the name to life, thanks to the bullets lodged in each of them. These novelty items were initially created as gifts for friends and families, however the two began selling them on a much larger scale once people saw how freaking cool those things were.

The Shot Glass

Benshot, the name of the company, sells the shot glasses and tumblers with actual bullets embedded in them. While the duo has not revealed how exactly they do it, they do state that the glasses were actually shot with live bullets. The glasses come at a cost of $15 for the shot glass and $23 for the tumbler.

Presumably, they create the shot glasses out of molten glass and then shoot them shortly thereafter, allowing the bullet to push and stretch the glass without breaking the surface on the other end.

The Tumbler

Before you ask, these shot glasses are safe to use. The gunpowder and lead are cleaned out of them before being packaged and sold to interested parties. Washing the glasses could discolor the bullet over time, but if anything, it really just gives your shot glass character.

Looks like I found the perfect message-sending gift for my enemies.

Wearable Drinking Glasses Are the Boozier, Adult Version of Ring Pops

2

I miss Ring Pops. Do you miss Ring Pops?   They were the perfect size, a perfect snack, and never ever got on your clothes or required nuisances like a spoon. Having tried to navigate many a party with a cup in hand and a friend, snack, or stolen inflatable shark in the other, having a hands-free cup has been something I’ve only dreamed of.

Well apparently, I wasn’t the only one. Designer Merve Kahraman has developed a selection of wearable mini drinking glasses, named the “Seduction Series.”

According to Kahraman, “these unique items of glassware and serving accessories are intended to sensitize people to the expectation of complex olfactory experiences by using specific gestures.”  Oh. . . I’m supposed to smell my alcohol seductively first? Sure, let’s see how that works out. Glug Glug Glug.

No matter how you use them, these fancy ring drinks are pretty darn gorgeous, and I would feel quite classy walking into a party, sauntering up to the bar, and asking for a taste of fine liqueur poured directly into my handy dandy (get it?!?!) glass.  It just might beat a Ring Pop.

Meat Shot Glasses for Bacon-Flavored Vodka Shots

The possibilities are endless.

It’s like an all-inclusive fondue, courtesy of ManBQue, and their manly, meat-loving ways (that’s as inappropriate as you want it to be). These cups of ground beef can be used to consume melted cheese, bacon-flavored vodka, “enhanced” barbecue sauce, and pretty much anything else you’d want to eat  with bite-sized quantities of meat.

Also, edibility means no clean up. Then again, by the time the shots come out, no one is ever concerned with the clean up, anyway.

Melting Shot Glasses For Your Really Drunk Friends

TIPSY

It’s time to face the facts, guys: We live in a form-over-function world. That’s why we buy things like MacBooks, Louis Vuitton waffle irons, and tickets to Twilight movies. So, maybe using a melting shot glass is a little like playing Russian Roulette (because the only thing worse than death is accidentally splashing a little cinnamon-flavored whiskey in your eye). So, what? Beauty is pain, and these no-two-are-alike shot glasses (made by actually semi-melting the originals) are nothing if not beautiful. Right? Right?

Well. If not, they’d be fun to give to your really drunk friends. “What the hell, man? You melted my glass! You owe me a beer.”

We’re looking at 9.2 fl. oz wine glasses that resemble crystal, but dissassemble with ease for efficient packing, storing and classy drinking on the run.
