Remember making Kool-Aid as a kid, or, if you’re anything like me, last week? Did you ever think to yourself, “If only I could make something stronger this way.” Well your wish has come true! Powdered alcohol, called Palcohol, has been approved and is available for all adults of legal drinking age.
Let’s look at some of the pros around this news. Powder will be a lot easier to store than a bunch of bottles. It will be lighter, so when you’re stocking up for a big weekend party, you’ll be able to carry it all in the house in one trip. There are four flavors; cosmopolitan, margarita, vodka, and rum, so those who have a scientific curiosity can start mixing the powders to create their own alcoholic concoctions. It’ll be a lot easier to hide from the parent’s when they are out of town.
Of course, whenever there is something completely new available, there will be the naysayers wanting it stopped before it can begin. Some states are already moving to place bans on Palcohol stating potential abuse by minors, afraid they will figure out how to abuse it, because, you know, that doesn’t happen with the regular stuff right now. There is also fear some may choose to snort it instead of drinking it. Makes me wonder if there are kids out there snorting Kool-Aid for fun?
Palcohol should be available this summer wherever you go to buy your other liquid libations. Just remember to keep it away from your Kool-Aid collection, you don’t want to serve it at the next kid’s birthday party by mistake!
