While they're outlawing Four Loko...

... what about Spanish coffee?

Comments (11)

Kahlua, Bacardi 151, Bols triple sec and coffee topped with fresh whipped cream and nutmeg, flamed tableside.

Do they need a fire permit?

Ahhh....151...those were the days.

I love Huber's.

Huber's, good product placement ten days before Thanksgiving.

Go By Turkey

Whoa. You're going too far there Jack. I mean if Hubers gets a pdc loan then fine have at 'em. But really, We should be protecting our local treasures.

Geez, just reading that ingredient list burns my nostrils.

Wikipedia provides some clues:

In its US market, Phusion Projects added a 23.5oz (695ml) beverage named Four Loko to its Four product line subsequent to the launch of Four Maxed. Four Loko contains 12.0% ABV. It is available in nine flavors: the three original flavors (fruit punch, orange blend and grape), plus watermelon, blue raspberry, kiwi strawberry, lemonade, cranberry lemonade and lemon lime. Watermelon Four Loko also contains FD&C Red #40.[3] In 2009, Four Loko ranked fourth in sales growth among alcoholic beverages at 7-Eleven stores nationwide. A can of Four costs approximately $2.50, but can cost as little as $1.99 in some areas.[3]

good product placement

Man, I haven't been in Huber's in 15 years or more. But I hope they note the referral to their site and offer me a ham-turkey sandwich capped off with a Spanish.

The reason these drinks were marketed is BECAUSE their was a market. Mixing Vodka and "Rockstar" has been a popular drink for years. They just put it in a can. Lets just do prohibition again and let the mexican maffia take over

us old folks don't get it... it's a purple drank thing, and it's no coincidence that this happened right after lil wayne was released

As long as we are banning things can we ban Schnapps?
