Something tells me that parents are not going to be happy with this one: Students in the Netherlands have developed powdered alcohol. Five classmates at Helicon Vocational Institute - about an hour's drive from Amsterdam - put the idea together as part of their final project. The product, which they're calling Booz2Go, will be available in 7-ounce packets, costing around $2 a piece. The concoction is added to water for a slightly fizzy, green lime-flavored drink containing around 3% alcohol. Oh and the best part is that they're targeting underage drinkers.
Because the alcohol is not in liquid form, we can sell it to people below 16," said project member Martyn van Nierop. [The legal drinking age there is 16.]
