When I first heard about the Guzzle Buddy, a special glass that lets you drink straight from the wine bottle, I thought it was too ridiculous to be true. It reminds me of a weird, but funny present you might give to a bride-to-be at her bachelorette party. Who would use this product? Isn't drinking out of the bottle frowned upon? Well, when I really mulled (ha) it over, I decided that it's a pretty cool product.
The Guzzle Buddy is an oversized wine glass that screws into the top of your bottle. When you tilt the bottle to fill the glass, this gadget naturally aerates the wine, enhancing both the taste and aroma. Not only does the device strengthen the flavor, it also reduces the need to pour your own glass. Is it lazy? Maybe. Is it unique? Definitely. I'm not sure I'd want to drink out of a glass that's bigger than my face, but it might be funny for others to witness.
This gadget is available for $28.99 on Amazon. It's a great present for wine enthusiasts, but it's a fun joke gift too. As long as you're being responsible, I say have fun with it and consume your wine the way you want to.
