Coming to a whisky glass near you - powdered alcohol

Fed up with having to traipse all the way to the wine bar for your favourite tipple? Well, many Americans are - which is why they are super-keen on a new "get sick quick" product called Palcohol.

Palcohol, or powdered alcohol, is being marketed by an American company called Lipsmark.

Available in six varieties, the product comes in pouches which you stir into water for a lethal shot of rum, whisky or vodka. It will also be available in Britain later this year.

If you aren't feeling particularly thirsty, don't worry. Lipsmark informs us you can sprinkle it on your food instead.
