This summer I'm planning to keep cool with a countertop glass drinks dispenser: I'll be adding ice, mint, slices of cucumber (or any citrus fruit). lemon verbena, even rose petals to create icy flavored water for neighborhood drop-ins.
Here are two options at different ends of the price spectrum: I'm currently coveting a terrarium-inspired glass beverage dispenser from Anthropologie that begs to be displayed. If the $298 price tag seems a little hefty, West Elm offers a simpler, slightly smaller, but equally accommodating dispenser for $59, and CB2 has one for $49.95. Details below.
