I’m waiting for a Pixy Stix version

The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau has approved, and then suddenly disapproved, the line of Palcohol powdered cocktails produced by Lipsmark LLC of Arizona.

The individual packets weigh one ounce and should be mixed with five ounces of water or your favorite mixer. And they are not snortable:

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 a lot of pain for very little gain. Just use it the right way.

This technique could make for a truly dry martini. (Current methodology: pour the gin, open the bottle of vermouth just long enough for the gin to sense its presence, and then close the bottle.) At least, it ought to be worth a, um, shot.

    I saw that on the news. It made me alternately make an “ew” face and a “this is going to lead to terribly unintended consequences” face. (As in: that student who was chugging an iced tea before class, was that just iced tea, or had I better keep the dissection scalpel away from his unsteady little fingers?)
