This Round’s On Me!

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Buying your friends a drink at a bar is just a click away.

Thanks to, distance is no longer an excuse to be stingy about buying the next round.

The site allows you to buy a cocktail online and send it as a gift voucher to your friend via email, text, or snail mail, complete with a personal message. Your friend then redeems their drink at a participating vendor.

It was a call from Texas that led site founder Steven Cohen to come up with the novel idea.

He explains, “My friend called me with good news and I said, ‘I wish I could buy you a drink.’ When I hung up I thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be cool if I could actually do that?’”

Cohen says people are having lots of fun with the site and are using it to send cheer – and cheers – to old buddies.

And with more than 12,000 cyber drinks already sold, he certainly has plenty to toast to.
