Palcohol is a new product about to hit the streets in America. It's the brainchild of Mark Phillips and is a powdered version of rum, vodka, in fact a whole range of your favourite cocktails!
The powdered alcohol has the same alcoholic content as the real stuff, so it's much more than just about taste. Yes you can get drunk on it! It's inventor, who is a keen outdoors man, came up with the idea to save him carrying a load of heavy bottles in his back pack. He does though carry water and it seemed to him that it would be a great idea to be able to just add a powder to the water to re-create his favourite tipple at the end of a long day's hiking!
After years of trial and error Mark finally came up with Palcohol and it has just been approved for sale by America’s Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau. The product is expected to spread across America and the rest of the world this summer.
Our Leeds Escorts think it sounds like a great idea. They could see many advantages apart from not having to carry the bottles home! For a start, it would take up less space in your cupboard and they thought it might be good for adding to recipes. However, its inventor doesn't recommend sprinkling it on your breakfast cereal. ‘When you add Palcohol to food, you’re not really adding flavour to the dish, just alcohol,’ said Mark.
We can't wait to try it!
