Powdered Booze Is Here

Good news for college kids up for experimentation: powdered alcohol is now legal.

The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau has approved Palcohol for sale in the United States. What exactly is Palcohol? Well, it’s a powder product that, when water is added, becomes an alcoholic drink.

Basically, Palcohol is a way to transport booze with a lot less volume. No more schlepping around three bottles to make Kamikaze shooters. Now, pick up a pack of Palcohol (and say that three times fast) and you are ready to go.

Oh, and sorry to disappoint, but it’s not snortable (so they say).

 Can I snort it? We have seen comments about goofballs wanting to snort it. Don’t do it! It is not a responsible or smart way to use the product. To take precautions against this action, we’ve added volume to the powder so it would take more than a half of a cup of powder to get the equivalent of one drink up your nose. You would feel all pain for little gain. Just use it the right way.


Palcohol will come in six flavors: vodka, rum, Cosmopolitan, Mojito, Powderita and Lemon Drop. Sales will begin in the fall.
