Dutch courage ?

This is all we need , easy access to alcohol for underage kids although it will change the face of take away booze considerably and maybe solve a lot of litter problems .

Dutch students invent powdered alcohol
Thursday Jun 7 06:35 AEST
Dutch students have invented powdered alcohol which they say can be sold legally to minors.

The latest innovation in inebriation, called Booz2Go, is available in 20-gramme packets that cost a euro to a euro and a half ($A1.60 to $A2.45).

Top it up with water and you have a bubbly, lime-coloured and flavoured drink with just three per cent alcohol content.

"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 told Reuters.

Van Elderen and four classmates at Helicon Vocational Institute, about an hour's drive from Amsterdam, came up with the idea as part of their final-year project.

"Because the alcohol is not in liquid form, we can sell it to people below 16," said project member Martyn van Nierop.

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

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.
If one sachet equal 3% alcahol does this mean that you can put several sachets into one glass to make stronger booze?

I can almost hear our local down and outs drooling at the idea... :(
