'Data Cocktail' is a robotic mixologist that has made it possible for people to "actually drink Twitter." While social media and the world of mixology may seem like an unlikely pair, this machine brings the two worlds together to create unbelievable mixed drinks.

Data Cocktail was invented by Clément Gault as a way to use the power of social media to create custom cocktails. The machine works by scanning Twitter for the last five messages posted with the name of the available ingredients included. The robotic mixologist will then use the most recent messages to create the perfect drink. Once finished, the machine will print out the tweets used and the recipe for the cocktail, giving consumers a bespoke gift to take away from the experience.
