That's Alcohol WithOut Liquid.

The user chooses which alcoholic spirit will be used and the alcoholic spirit is loaded into a diffuser capsule in the machine. The oxygen bubbles are then passed through the capsule, absorbing the alcohol, before being inhaled through a tube. The resultant cloudy alcohol vapor is then inhaled from the end of the tube via a device that converts liquid to vapor.

They claim that you can't get very drunk with this method because it takes 20 minutes to 'inhale' a shot. I know people that can get ripped on three drinks in an hour. Another claim they make is "no hangover", which also sounds bogus to me since the alcohol is still getting into your bloodstream, regardless of the path it takes.

Sorry, but this doesn't impress me as anything more than a gimmick. When I drink (rarely), it's because I enjoy the taste. Inhaling a Dewars on the rocks just wouldn't be the same, and if I'm drinking for effect (even more rare), I prefer a little ceremony with my buzz. Tequila, lime and salt please - and the salt is optional, unless I'm lucky enough to be doing body shots. :D

Oh yeah, they also advertise it as "low calorie and low carb". Jeez I am so sick of that crap.

A brandy bong!

And I don't want my carbs taken away, I NEED my carbs!

It wouldn't work for my favorite drink. I doubt you'd be able to dissolve the sugar cube and still turn it into bubbles.

And if I wanted to sniff liquorice, I'd buy a box of Twizzlers, dammit!

I spent a memorable week at Spangdahlem AB in Germany, working hard during the days, and doing shots of Sambuca with Long Island Ice Tea chasers all night at the NCO club. Luckily, we were within crawling distance of our rooms. Didn't get much sleep though. :D
