Awesome Liquor Bottle Hookahs

Last month I saw a pic of some awesome looking hookahs made out of liquor bottles. Started checking them out and they looked pretty simple to knock out with parts from Home Depot. I actually had a bunch of stuff from left over test parts on the Bar machine so worked out.

Instead of a normal hookah hose, they’re the mini shot version of the bottle with a clear tubing hose covered in velvet.

This is an X-Rated 750ml. At first had a normal hookah hose since was having a hard time finding the mini’s for the mouth piece but finally got it.

Check out my hookah gallery for pics during the making of them. Next I have a big 1.75ml Patron bottle that I’m going to do 2 hoses on. I’ll write up a build post for that one probably this week sometime. Here is the bottle that’s finally empty.

    I LOVE the Pink Xrated Bottle Hookah. Do you sell them? How much would it cost for me to get one?

    Are you selling them ? I really want to buy one!

    • Chris says:

      Sorry, I’m not selling. I just make them for myself. I posted a How-to on my blog if you or someone you know wants to take on the job. Its not too hard.

    What did you use for the sealant around the copper steam and the lid of the bottle? Is it non-toxic and produce fumes that are bad for inhaling?

    • Chris says:

      About the seal, actually the cork for the tops made a perfect seal so I just drilled a hole through there and it works great. The Cazadores and a couple other bottles that I have done do not have a cork top just a normal plastic screw on kind. For those I just did the same thing as far as drilling a hole and that fits well to provide a seal but the whole stem is wiggly and moves alot. I was thinking of maybe cutting some cork to fit under the cap to help stabilize but haven’t tried it yet.

      I think its fairly safe, but I don’t have real facts here please research if your doing this on your own. I know the epoxy I use I had asked the manufacturer about how toxic it is and they said its non-toxic once it completely hardens. Aside from that everything else is food grade and doesn’t become heated to any high temps.

    I’ve been trying to drill my own bottles and have had some success as well as a lot of failures.

    Been trying to use s 3/8 inch bit, and I can drill through, if I’m careful, but when I try to ream the hole out, the sides of the bottle crack sometimes. How do you prevent this?

    • Chris says:

      Are you using a glass bit? Like the diamond tip ones made for glass/tile?

      Remember, always wet drill it and don’t apply too much pressure to make it go faster. Just apply a little pressure.

      I tried a couple different kinds out. The best one seems to be the one that just cuts around the edge and for me left some play inside so I didn’t really need to rim the hole inside that much except to clean up the edges so there not sharp.
      In the pic the one I like is the farthest on the right. The ones that also shave the center take so long to drill. http://i143.photobucket.com/albums/r149/lindasewandsew/misc/20090723003.jpg

      • Josh says:

        I bought some glass cutting drill bits that are similar in design to the one you had in that picture, they work fairly well, but I’ll look and see about getting a higher quality piece. Where did you get that bit from, if you don’t mind my asking?

        I think my drill itself might also be a big problem, it’s old as heck, but I’m replacing it soon.

        Thank you for your advice, I’ll let ya know how my next one turns out after I replace that thing.
