Absintheum part 2

Thursday, September 6, 2012

So for the "Absintheum", or hand crank Absinth preparer, there are several separate mechanisms that must be linked together and timed to accomplish the proper preparation of a glass of Absinthe.

There is no real size limitation on this beast, but it should probably not be bigger than what would fit in a steamer trunk.

General sections:

Drive train
This distributes the rotation of the hand crank to the various sections and also coordinates the timing of each piece with the presentation of the final prepared glass to the user.

Dose preparation
Decants one oz of Absinth from the bottle and delivers it to the glass.

Sugar preparation
Loads a sugar cube onto the spoon and then places the spoon over the glass.

Water dispenser
Delivers the required amount of chilled water to the glass through the sugar.
This step needs to be slow and steady, with an adjustment for the quantity of water needed.
Also it would be good if there was a display section that might make an enlarged view of the process available to the patron/user.

Glass delivery
Moves the prepared glass to the user with an appropriate notification like a flag, gong, bell or whistle?

Other sections required:
Bottle holder, glass holder, sugar supply, water chiller and reservoir.

Ideas and designs welcome!

Keep your sightglass full, your firebox trimmed and your water iced.
