    I double checked the approval date, just to make sure it wasn't April 1st.

    There were several articles about this today in various media. Really, they were the same article repeated several times. What none addressed is the science of this. How is it possible? I'm extremely skeptical.

    The chemistry of modern booze

    In nature, alcohol, aka ethanol, exists as a liquid, so how do you make it into a powder that's dry to the touch? We spoke to Sam Bompas, half of the food design and research team Bompas & Parr about what powdered alcohol might actually be. According to Bompas, the ethanol is probably "micro-encapsulated" in some kind of molecular container, kind of like a teeny gelcap. Or a mountain of them. "The alcohol molecules themselves will still be liquid, they are just enrobed in a microscopic shell," he told us.

    Re: coming soon ... powdered bourbon

    I'm not too much into the powdered drinks and stuff, except for the Crystal Light I use to perk up my daily water intake at work. If they ever come up with an intravenous bourbon however, I might just be interested in that.
