In 2010, we saw a wave of new beverages that combined high-octane alcohol with caffeine and other energy ingredients and put them together in colorful cans. Four Loko dominated the trend, both with the kids (who shouldn't be drinking alcohol) and with the media (who love a scandal that scares parents). By 2011, Four Loko (and others?) had vowed to take the drinks off of store shelves and replace them with colorful cans without the caffeine and taurine. Still 12 percent booze, though! All better now?
Sorry to throw so much news upfront there. You just wanted to see Don Johnson lead a tour of the Four Loko "Vineyards." Here you go!
