This glass infuser for liquids is designed by Crucial Detail design studio in Chicago and has been successfully kickstarted through the site with the same name. The Porthole is made of iron and glass and can be used to make all kinds of drinks and concoctions, from cocktails, salad dressings, coffee, tea and other infusions to veritable works of art. All you have to do is select the fruit, herbs, eyes of newt or whatever else you want, load them in the vessel, press the glass plates together and pour liquid through the opening. Making beautiful cocktails has never been easier or more visually appealing.

If you want to order this as a gift, just remember that orders placed now are expected to ship in September 2013.
