You Can Make The Original Four Loko With This DIY Recipe If You Dare

Oh my.

If you’re around my age (30), you came up around the time Four Loko was killing people.

Too much stimulants and alcohol mixing around in that body. Since then, they changed the recipe to make it safe(r), and removed all the dangerous stuff.

They took the ingredients listed in an original Gizmodo piece, and created a tutorial video, showing each step.

4 ounces 80-proof vodka (40-percent ABV)
1 Berocca tablet
3 tablespoons Koolaid mix
1 tablespoon sugar

Watch the magic happen below, and proceed at your own risk…
