If you’re looking for an automated solution for your home bar, check out this Raspberry Pi-powered cocktail maker created by Alexander Liggesmeyer. It does exactly what it sounds like—it uses a Raspberry Pi to make cocktails at the push of a button.
The best Raspberry Pi projects are easy to share and this one features a notably user-friendly web-based interface. Users access the UI from a browser and choose the drink they want to order. The Pi then uses a series of pumps to create the drink algorithmically. So just be sure to have your glass ready!
According to Liggesmeyer, the project relies on a Raspberry Pi 4B, which connects to a relay board that helps monitor eight food-safe peristaltic dosing pumps and diodes. The drink ingredients are transported using sections of a silicone hose.
The UI is pre-programmed with a menu of drinks, but users can create their own recipes to share with others. Then, if all of the ingredients are available, the drink can be ordered.
