Powdered alcohol set to hit the market

Music 23/04/2014

A powdered alcohol product called Palcohol is set to hit stores in the coming months.

Palcohol is made by an Arizona company called Lipsmark and will come in six varieties of single-drink pouches, the company website says.

According to the Palcohol website, the founder of the company came up with the idea to make it easier for those wanting to consume alcohol after energetic activities, without having to carry bottles, although it wouldn't be surprising for people to sneak pouches into clubs in order to save money.

Those hoping it will be on shelves sometime soon will be treated to powdered rum and vodka, which can be added to water or other liquids, while cocktails are represented by Cosmopolitan, Mojito, a Powderita and Lemon Drop.

However, for those thinking it will be a good idea to snort, think again. The website addresses any "goofballs" wishing to do so by saying "it would take more than a half of a cup of powder to equal one drink.

"Don't do it! It is not a responsible or smart way to use the product," it urged
