My invention is a beverage cooler and dispenser adapted to contain liquids which have a certain amount of sediment'andin which it is desired to in dispensing. j
Anobject of my invention is to provide a beverage cooler and dispenser inattrabstir up the sediment tive form, particularly for dispensing beverages containing 'a' considerable portion of sediment such juices. 1 p I A further object of my invention is to provide cooling-devices such as ice con-' vided on a horizontal line below'the neck, the bottom portion of'the bottle forming a liquid receptacle, the upper portion of the. bottle with a typical metal cap forming a top closure. A stem extends downwardly throu h=the top' closure or cap and is supporte by the foot which rests on the bottom of the lower portion of-the bottle.
Ayoke is attached to the stem and has suspended therefrom a pair of ice containers preferably formed of'glass. gThe stem is jointed having a bayonettype of joint so that the upper portion with the-neck portion of the bottle maybe disconnectedand a renewed supply of the beverage or'ice inserted in the bottle structureor the ice containers without removing the latter if unnecessary.
A'handle on the upper; end of the stem I allows the stem and theice containers to stood from' the following description and be rotated to stirth'e contents of the bottle. j

for the stem.
My beverage cooler comprises a structure simulating a soda Water bottle as indicated generall by the numeral 1 having a lower or bott e portion 2 for containing ,7 the beve g a seek porti na e as] orange and i'other fruit beverage cooler. and c fitted together tongue joints. Amp 5 which simulates the ordinaryfmeta'lcap of a soda water bottle is secured to the top of the neck and througha foot 8 forms the base. -A supporting stem 9 ,extends upwardly from the base and has a bayonet joint 10 connecting'it with the operating stem 11, the latter having transverse pins 12 toengage the bayonet joint;
A handle 13 issecured to the upperfend of the operating stem and "mayibe used for raisingand lowering same or for rotat- 7 ing it. A yoke 14 is "secured to the, stem 9 preferably above the joint 4 and has a pinrali tyof openings 15 in which are suspended the ice containers l6; these'-latterhaving a rim'17-to allow their support'from the yoke. themeans' for A spigot-or the like 1 8 forms dispensing the liquid.
and dispenseris; substantially as vfollows: 'By meansof the:bayo netjconnection of has an" aperture 6 there- I I 60 A stand designated generally by the numere-1 7, for insertion in the bottle, having The-manner otuse; of mybeverage cooler the operating stemtlI-and the supporting stem 9 the bottleneck may be removed lifting the ice containers therewithii desired or'the operating stemcan be detached from the supporting stein .allo'wingfree removal of the bottle neck and the handle;the ice containers being removable than by the-up per'end ofthe supporting stem. This allows thoroughcleansing ofthe lower or bottle portion of the dispenser. .The ice may be filled in the ice containers either while therev is beverage in the bottle or beforethe Yinsertion' of the" ice containers in position.
The ice containers are supported on the supporting stand onwthe bottom of the bottle wherethere is substantially no weight from the containers on' the bottle neckor the joint. when it is "desired to 'stir j the liquid the handle is rotated, thus rotating theuice containersythe supporting stem and thefoot. Thisthoroughly'agitates the s'edi5 ment and-jbrings-the cooling ice containers into intimate contact;- with'theliquid to be dispensed, thereby thoroughly cooling same.
It is preferable to make the dispensing bottle of glassand the ice containers also of 'glass as athese are more attractive-to the public and causeinore ready sales than the enclosed. containers in which the: contents 519; is are Invisible. Reve end? agitate the beverage.
.acter, nevertheless it Will be apparent that it may be changed in general construction or specific details to suit particular types of liquid dispensers, such changes being within the scope of my lnventlon as set forth n the description, drawings and claims.
It will benoted that the neck portion 8 has considerable outward bulge above the joint v4: to allow :for stirring the beverage by reciprocating the stand with the ice-containers up and down.
