Invention of the day: Powdered alcohol.
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 20g packets that cost $1.60 to $2.45.

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," 20-year-old Harm van Elderen told Reuters.

...The students said companies interested in making the product commercially could avoid taxes because the alcohol was in powder form.
