Now that we've grown up and can no longer (reasonably) be excited about spotting the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile in the wild, keep your eyes peeled for distiller Monkey Shoulder's 21-and-over version: a giant cement mixer cocktail shaker dubbed the Monkey Mixer.

It's making its grand debut at Arizona Cocktail Week, February 17 to 19, before making a grand tour across the country to other cocktail festivals, plus a few surprise pit stops. According to the press release, the giant metal shaker can mix up a 2,400-gallon cocktail (or 123,000 bottles' worth of Scotch whisky) that's then dispensed through a chute.

"People should play with their whisky, and enjoy the experience," Seb Derbomez, an ambassador for Monkey Shoulder, says. "The Monkey Mixer is a great vehicle to share this message in a big and unmistakable way."
