The Flavour Blaster Review
The Cocktail Industries Hottest Innovation
The Flavour Blaster is the new kid on the mixology block. We’ve not seen anything as fun as this since dry ice had its heyday in bars.
What is a Flavour Blaster?
It’s an innovative piece of cocktail equipment that allows the bartender to make epic edible bubbles, flavoured mist and smoke clouds.
These flavoured bubbles sit on top of drinks and are easily popped to release a scented mist, that smells beautiful and infuses flavour into cocktails.
It does have wow factor, there is no doubt about that and guest engagement is significant when its used….cocktails are all about theatrics and this is the ideal gizmo for theatrics.
How Does it Work?
So the Flavour Blaster itself is a handheld gun-like tool, that blows out flavoured vapour bubbles that are created via the specialist Flavour Blaster bubble mix.
These come in a number of flavours including mixed berries, citrus, ginger, rosemary and smoke.
What Can you do with a Flavour Blaster?
The tool opens up a number of possibilities as a bartender.
You Can Grab Attention
As you can see from the video, you can create excitement through the vapour bubbles. Most will not have seen anything like this before, so in a bar or restaurant, the vapour bubbles sat on top of a cocktail will get your customers attention.
Guest engagement in a bar, equals more sales, both in lifetime value but also on the night. People go to bars where they have a good time and feel comfortable and engaging them through a Flavour Blaster will help create the vibes needed to keep customers coming back.
The Flavour Blaster allows bartenders to smash out volume cocktails with wow factor in a 100% safe way. This is gold dust in busy bar environments.
You Can Create New Flavour Combinations
Using a Flavour Blaster gives you the opportunity to play with the flavours which work in so many different cocktails.
Choosing a flavour to compliment the taste of your cocktail can really enhance the experience.
Smell is also an extremely important sense when eating and drinking and this bartending tool allows mixologists to enhance that drinking experience in a way similar to how picking a garnish with the right bouquet might do so.
The Belle Of The Night is a wicked example of a cocktail made using a Flavour Blaster.
How Much is a Flavour Blaster?
We have to say, The Flavour Blaster is not cheap, but when used properly in a bar, you will get a return on investment through increased sales. Incremental sales from that group that stayed for another round or that ice breaker for gaining customer loyalty is invaluable.
A full Flavour Blaster kit will set you back just shy of £310 and comes with everything you’ll need to start blowing bubbles.
Aroma Scent refills cost £4.95 each and a bottle of Bubble Mixture is £14.95.
Where can you Buy a Flavour Blaster?
