Step aside Kool-Aid, there’s a new “add water and stir” crystal in town and it doesn’t change color when you add water. It becomes alcohol. Powdered alcohol, or Palcohol, is exactly what it sounds like. Each pouch contains the equivalent of one mix drink worth of alcohol (10-12% by volume). It was purposefully made large in volume to deter people from snorting it; but if you want to try for yourself, we’d love to hear about it. When Palcohol is released it will be available as rum, vodka, Cosmopolitan, Mojito, Margarita and Lemon Drop. This will undoubtedly make sneaking drinks into movies much easier; just don’t give any to the Kool-Aid man. If you hadn’t already guessed, he is well over the limit. Palcohol is expected to be available this fall. For more info, visit
