Whipped cream dispensers don’t have to be reserved for the kitchen. They can also be used behind the bar to make creamier and fluffier cocktails.
A few drops of water will make Irish coffee more delicious. But the possibilities are limitless. Deena Sayers of Drinks by Deena describes as a bar consultant. She says that is a magical device that can make cocktails in 30 seconds. It can also flash-infuse alcohol in 30 seconds and create gourmet flavored creams, booze filled foams, and vegan-friendly froths.
It’s also quite enjoyable to experience foaming cocktails and making them. Anthony Escalante is the bar manager at Wrigley Mansion. He says that this process can create memorable experiences for guests and allow them to interact and educate others. You can be certain that they will tell their friends about the experience. Here are some of our favorites.
Best Overall: iSi Gourmet Whiskp
Dean Hurst, beverage director at Florida’s Datz Restaurant Group says that “iSi whipped-cream dispensers are the standard for versatility and durability.” Benjamin Pozar, a bartender at Brazilian steakhouse Fogo de Chao, Bedford, Texas, agrees that iSi is the gold-standard, with a variety of sizes available depending upon your bar’s needs.
The iSi whipped-cream dispensers are so desirable. Mixologist Dave Arnold invented the rapid infusion process. Escalante explains that N2O (nitrous Oxide) flows from the iSi cream charging into the iSi whipper. This forces the liquid and the nitrogen to organically mix under high pressure with flavoring substances. The N2O (nitrous oxide) forms bubbles when the whipper pressure is released and absorbs the flavor of the ingredient. This is when the liquid has acquired the aroma.
He claims that the iSi Gourmet whip is the best on the market. However, it can also be used to make incredible whips or emulsions.
Good to know:
Hurtz suggests adding a pinch of cinnamon before whipping the cream. It’s subtle and a great way to flavor your coffee beverages.
” I have always used iSi Whip Cream Canisters, both at work and at home,” Jonathan Stanyard, Feast, Seattle, WA. These canisters are reliable and solid for whip cream as well as infusions and foams.
The iSi Nitro Whip makes nitro-infused drinks easy. It uses a charger to push nitrogen into the coffee and cocktail. This creates small bubbles that give the drink a foamy texture. Sayers says that this particular whipped cream dispenser makes it easy to infuse liquor and sodas. Fill the canister with booze, water, herbs and produce. Attach a NO2 (nitrogen dioxide), or CO2 (carbon dioxide), to make liquor infusions. You’re done!
Best for experts: iSi Gourmet whip with Rapid Infusion Tools
Ethan Campbell, a bartender from Sense Thai St, says that the iSi Blacktail whipped cream dispensers are “the gold standard for creating whipped creams or foams with stiff peaks,” It’s very stable and reliable.
Campbell says, “iSi also makes a compatible quick infusion set which is capable of creating rapid nitrous fusions such as infused spirits and bitters.” The rapid infusion kit allows you to skip letting bitters infuse for days or even weeks. It then speeds up the process by condensing it into a matter of seconds. You can also make light, fluffy soups and sauces or a variety of cocktails with it.
This kit includes iSi’s signature whipper, a funnel insert with a sieve insert and a 5-piece infusion set. There is also a 10-pack additional chargers.

Jules Aron, author of Low Proof Happy Hour notes that the dispenser is a “game changer for any high volume bar.” However, you should “charge your dispenser upside-down to allow the gas through all liquid.”
Best Small: EurKitchen Professional Whipped Cream Dispenser
This chilled metal canister holds a full pint of liquid and can be used to make mousses, whipped creams or nitro coffees. You can make your own hard seltzer by removing the gas cartridge. You can quickly make a laborious Ramos Gin Fizz by using the canister.

After shaking the canister, place the mixture in the refrigerator for up to 14 days. To customize the flow, there are two decorator tips available: a straight or bullet.

Francis Coligado is the beverage director at Atlanta’s Delbar. This technique was taught to me by the Dead Rabbit, who are the experts in making Irish coffee. It is very easy to use the bottle. Simply add the cream to the shaker ball and shake. To add flavor, you can add any syrup!
He also said that the bottle was easy to clean and didn’t take up much space. This technique is used to make our Irish Coffee riff. It’s served with Bacardi Ocho, Irish whiskey, cold brew concentrate and tarragon mint syrup. This is also a favorite of Pozar. A standard protein shaker bottle with wire balls works well to make light whipped cream that is layered on top of an Irish Coffee.
