Ever hosted a party and had to play bartender the entire time? Well, we have your solution! We have created an easy to use cocktail maker. This cocktail maker will be able to make at least 2 mix drinks at the click of a button! This guarantees a delicious cocktail every time. We will do this by coding an Arduino to control pumps/valves that are attached to the ingredients. Our machine is based off of a weighted plate. Once you have selected their drink, the machine will zero the scale and start pouring the beverage. We will ensure that each drink will have the proper proportions by zeroing the scale after each ingredient is added.
