Powdered Booze



All You Need is Water: Dutch Students Make Alcohol Powder

The latest innovation in inebriation, called Booz2Go, is available in 20-gram packets that cost 1-1.5 euros ($1.35-$2)and because it is in powdered form, can be sold legally to minors.

Just what the current crop of underaged pop tarts need, eh?

Maybe they'll add a little white mixing stick made of sugar..like those Dip Stix thingies.

And we thought "Big League Chew" was a bad influence on us kids back in the day!

The stick was the best part of the Dip Stix. I loved those as a kid.

Remember those gum cigarettes and the flour puff you could blow out of them? Those were considered a bad influence too.

Powdered booze?

Isn't that usually called cocaine?

WAIT a second, this tickles my chemistry curiosity.

Alcohol is a lot like water - hydrogen bonding and all that, right?

what the hades is this powder? It can't be alcohol.

brooke: ha!

birdwoman: My chemistry ears are up as well. Ethanol (Ch3-Ch2-OH) at room temperature is a liquid and extremely volatile. Sounds like a tall order for a school project.
