I'm kicking myself. Jeremy T. told me about Four Loko a few weeks ago, after his college president banned it from campus. I've been meaning to blog about this brew for weeks and now it's all over the news. Ugh. I like to be first.
What is Four Loko? It's a soft drink, developed by some enterprising former students from OSU, which combines the best of alchohol and caffeine. According to ABC, it "combines as much alcohol found in a six pack of beer with as much caffeine in five cups of coffee". You're drunk, but you're wired. It has been called "blackout in a can."
