Check out a 38-foot gin garnisher this weekend in Atlanta

An enormous machine has made its way to Atlanta with designs on dressing up your cocktail.

The Hendrick's Gin Grand Garnisher, a 38-foot cocktail garnishing device, is on tour and has several planned stops in metro Atlanta started today. The semi-automated machine, which can slice cucumbers while cruising at road speeds of up to 25 mph, is powered with a hybrid combination of a large diesel motor and a "well-dressed gentleman pedaling a large-wheeled bicycle," according to the Hendrick's website.

The Garnisher started its journey on June 14th -- National Cucumber Day -- from New York City and has made stops in Philadelphia and Washington DC, with plans to visit cities including Miami, New Orleans and Dallas.
