We’ve all been there: reaching the end of the glass, only to realise those around us have daintily sipped their drinks, and waiting to replenish ours until the time feels right, all the while unable to focus on the conversation while we dream of the next sip.
But now, someone has invented something to end all our wine woes. Forget the pretence of moderation, the Guzzle Buddy is here.
An extra-large wine glass which has a stopper instead of a stem, the Guzzle Buddy means you no longer have to deal with all the faff of spilling or re-filling, you can just drink to your heart’s content - because it attaches straight to the bottle.
Sure, it's just one step away from literally drinking straight from the bottle, but it's much more sophisticated.
Of course, the contraption must be approached with caution – we wouldn’t want anyone to down an entire bottle of wine in one sitting – and sharing is caring, after all. So we think its best used with a close friend, with whom you are happy to share saliva.
Or, since it doubles as a stopper, you can drink a glass or two, then pop it down for a later date, without worrying about it going off.
Of course the Guzzle Buddy is the ideal answer to ending those tiresome queues for the bar - why get in line? Simply get your fill in your own time.
An additional perk is that the glass is designed to perfectly aerate your plonk, so you can ensure you’re drinking it just how it was meant to be imbibed.
The product - available on Amazon for £22 – has already gone down a treat with consumers, many of whom have awarded it five stars.
One even commented: “Bought this as a gift for a wine guzzler friend. Needless to say it was a huge hit. Well worth the price!”
One for Christmas? We think so. But don’t forget that weekly unit count.
