Likely if they have any effects it's the coldness, sugar, and flavoring are masking the alcohol, so people drink a lot of them.

Either that or they have one or two at a party, drink a lot more of other more traditional drinks, get shiatfaced and retroactively blame the Phrostie.

Don't blame it on the sunshine
Don't blame it on the moonlight
Don't blame it on the good times
Blame it on the Phrostie

Just buy some liquor and make mixed drinks. It's cheaper and I'm sure better. Or if you're not a pansy drink it straight, posers.

I'd rather buy some myself and drink it at home anyway. Alone. With nobody else. 'Cause you know when I drink alone I prefer to be by myself.

Can't wait until Yögenbräu comes to life...
Seriously, the hell is up with all the 'new' alcohol stuff lately? Powdered alcohol, 4loco, and now this? Next up they'll try remaking Orbitz with little spheres of jagermeister floating in a clear beer...

Taste like a melted bomb pop. Somehow the koolaid and cheap juice mask the alcohol.

I hate Jager, but I'd seriously buy into alcoholic Orbitz. That stuff fascinated me as a kid.

You could make some kick-ass popsicles wth that stuff.

Shake and bake baby, brick of Richards and Kool-Aid. People in Chicago have been drinking this for decades, now it's news worthy because some rich kids from the East coast are tweeting about it. But from the sounds of it, they have been using Cisco for their slushies instead.

HA! I've been drinking 'slushed' Buckfast on summer since I was 15. (15%, plus energy drink levels of sugar, and caffiene)

Plus the sugar itself. 5% sugar in a drink is a lot if you have a few of them. Anytime I have some sort of 'alcopop' like a Smirnoff ice or something forced on me in recent years I noticed a distinct sugar rush afterwards that wasn't exactly pleasant (for me), when combined with the booze if I had been drinking a lot.

Its why I stick to good beer and whiskey, neat.

Pink Lemonade Kool-Aid and tequila goes good.

So does white rum and many the red Kool-Aids (Cherry, Strawberry and Raspberry)

Around 1998 we found that there was a flavor of tropical koolaid that could titrate against any amount of alcohol. We named the drink after a roommate's little brother.

AKA a daiquiri, or a farking margarita...

Sugar and temp effect the absorption rate of the booze (sugar speeds it up). Not really a mystery. Cold numbs the flavors so you can drink more.

I also like how the politicians heard rumors about this stuff on social media so their immediate pants wetting reaction was to try to ban the stuff without knowing anything about it.

If your margaritas have tons of sugar in them, you're doing it wrong. Tequila, lime juice (from an actual lime), and a little Cointreau. The last is very sweet, but you only use a tiny little amount. If it's actually a sweet drink, you've failed.

And those certainly aren't frozen, or resemble a 'phrostei'  in any way shape or form, so what's your farking point? You know damn well that the comparison I was drawing was between something that comes in a bag and goes into a frozen drink dispenser (you know, LIKE THE DRINK IN THE ARTICLE?!) and then they pour in some liquor.

Those are full of sugar.  Like, you know, the drinks in the article.  Which are also served frozen. Like the margarita.  And daiquiri.

There's nothing special except the delivery. And I bet they don't card.

Anyhow. I bet the real problem with this is the loss of tax revenues.

I've lived in Brooklyn for a few years and I didn't know anything about this Phrostie stuff.

I was just in Williamsburg for a friend's birthday party. We had beer.

Congratulations, dumbass hipsters in my own farking borough, you've discovered the black market daiquiri.

This is America. A margarita is a farking tequila slurpee in a six-foot plastic tube with a 40 of Bud Light jammed in the top.

Meh.  Now if it was alcoholic AND Rocket-Pop flavored instead of just being Rocket-Pop colored, you'd have me.

\I may have a slight addiction to Rocket-Pops

I want to go on the record as saying I legitimately miss the caffeinated, "energy" blends of Four Loko and the other shiatball drinks around a couple of years ago (Mad Ballr, anyone?)

We need to bring Goonjuice (the official drink of Fark hockey threads) to the masses. The recipe is simple: vodka and lemon-lime Gatorade. 60% Gatorade, 40% vodka, though you can adjust based on taste (especially with higher-proof vodka).
