[UPDATE] Coming Soon…Powdered Alcohol?
On Monday, we heard that powdered LIQUOR had been approved by the government, and would go on sale this fall. But now it looks like they might do a one-eighty and decide NOT to allow it.
Here's more on that and the original story is below:
I can't believe the government is allowing this...but POWDERED LIQUOR has been approved by the U.S. Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade bureau.
Powdered liquor is exactly what it sounds like. A company called Palcohol figured out how to turn vodka, rum, cosmopolitans, kamikazes, mojitos, margaritas, and lemon drops into POWDER. You just add water, stir, and you have a drink.
Palcohol's website had a lot of suggestions. Quote, "Some of our favorite [foods] are the kamikaze in guacamole, rum on a barbecue sandwich, cosmo on a salad, and vodka on eggs in the morning to start your day off right."
They also pointed out, quote, "Yes, you can snort it. And you'll get drunk almost instantly because the alcohol will be absorbed so quickly in your nose."
But they started getting attention, decided it was too over-the-top and potentially dangerous, and changed their website.
The powder's expected to be in stores in the fall. And if you're interested, you should probably buy bulk...because there's NO WAY this thing stays legal very long.
