You’re just a shake away from dinner and drinks: Make a game of cooking and cocktail devising by shaking up these dice (the included tumbler is made from reclaimed wine bottle glass!) and letting them roll. Yes, we had a lot of fun with them in the office. Choose the Foodie Dice if cooking is your thing—simply pick out the appropriate seasonal vegetable die out of the 4 included, add it to the 5 primary dice (there’s one for protein—which includes vegan and vegetarian options, cooking method, grains and carbs, herb, and a bonus ingredient), and roll. With nearly 200,000 possible combinations, it’s safe to say you’ll be out of that cooking rut soon. Or, opt for the Mixology Dice, a set of 8 dice including options for types of alcohol, sweeteners, garnishes, and other add-ins, which will make you feel like a trained bartender in no time. Skim the included instructional booklet for tips and techniques, and which dice to roll if you want to riff on traditional cocktails. It’s our new favorite way to jazz up happy hour.
