Alcohol Substitute Will Get You Drunk Without The Hangover. Thank You Jesus.

Wait, wait, wait…

So you’re telling me someone created something to put into drinks, it gets you drunk like vodka or whiskey would, but leaves you with no hangover?

Yup, that’s what I am sayin’ folks…It’s called Alcarelle.

From the Washington Post:

Alcarelle is the brainchild of David Nutt, a neuropsychopharmacology professor at Imperial College London and former adviser on substance abuse to the British government. It’s the brand name for a pair of alcohol substitutes that contain chemical compounds, which Nutt calls “alcosynths,” that mimic the fun of alcohol without the consequences.

Alcarelle has not undergone a regulatory or scientific peer review, Nutt said.

Nutt has pursued patents for roughly 90 chemical compounds that have the effect of knocking a couple back, and two of those lab creations have already been tested in humans. They could come to a bar near you if his newly formed company, also called Alcarelle, can raise the money needed to bring it to market, he said. The substitute would be sold as a liquid and added to your favorite cocktail or nonalcoholic beverage in lieu of vodka, rum, gin or other libations.

I’ll believe it when I experience it. But I want to try it. Bad. Like, bad bad. Can we get this dude some money?
