This was a brilliant move. A spirit-loving resident of Melitopol, Ukraine transformed a coffee vending machine into a vodka dispenser, providing shots for $1. Chasers and mixers were available for an additional fee, and the machine was available 24/7 to the public. We say "was," because local authorities shut the machine down once they got wind of it. Grub Street says the machine's ingenious creator was not detained, which means another machine might spring up elsewhere.

Pardon the fact that the video is in Ukranian, just marvel at the invention and laugh at feeble attempts to stop the machine by taping paper over places currensy is inserted.
