Final Year University students in The Netherlands have come up with, what I think could, or should be, one of the greatest inventions of all time.

It’s called Booz2Go, and its powdered alcohol in and instant, available in 20 gram packs. All you need to do is add water and hey presto! You have yourself your very own bubbly, lime-colored and -flavoured 3% alcoholic beverage. Brilliant!

“We are aiming for the youth market. They are really more into it because you can compare it
with Bacardi-mixed drinks,” 20-year-old Harm van Elderen says.

The students said companies interested in making the product commercially could avoid taxes because the alcohol was in powder form. A number of companies are interested, they said.

“Because the alcohol is not in liquid form, we can sell it to people below 16,” said project member Martyn van Nierop.
Well that’s a little bit irresponsible, and I thought alchohol abuse for under 18’s/21’s (depending on your country) was already a big problem.

The legal age for drinking alcohol and smoking is 16 in the Netherlands.

I’ve already chosen a slogan for the boys….”Booz2Go, coming to a High School (or nursery) near you!”
Good luck fellas!

  5. I just discoverd a product called ‘subyou’ made in Germany, sounds like a similar poduct.
    Maybe you should check that out on a search engine.
