Yep, this is happening.
The new Air, 'Alcohol Inspired Refresher'
, created by the Mckenzie River Corporation (MCR), is something like a vodka soda, only not, having gone through a â€śpatented processâ€ť which leaves it â€śvirtually odorless, colorless, and tasteless,â€ť like vodka, but being malt-based rather than distilled.
The result is a carbonated, mildly alcoholic (only 4% ABV) water-soda-malt-vodka hybrid that is touted to be the â€śfirstâ€ť of its kind.
Air comes in berry, citrus and club flavors; is highly carbonated; and is best served chilled, which helps to mask the already minimal malt-based flavoring.
Due to the fact that it's malt-based and each can only holds about .48 ounces of alcohol, you can buy it in your local grocery store right next to the beer.
It seems like America is constantly searching for quicker ways to get wasted
. Personally, I enjoy every glorious sip I take of a Red Bull and vodka and wouldn't trade it for all the cans of air vodka in the world.
