Monsieur is a robotic bartender that can mix 300 different cocktails. It’s smart enough to remember which concoctions you like and to make suggestions based on what you’ve previously ordered. It comes with a mobile app that lets you order a drink without getting up from the couch, and it even estimates your blood alcohol level so you don’t overindulge. Speaking of which, Monsieur will adjust the strength of his drinks to match your tolerance, whether you’re what it calls a “lightweight” or a “boss.”
