Cloud of Breathable Cocktail Can Make You Drunk just by Breathing

Food adventurists Sam Bompas and Harry Parr of Bompas & Parr (previously on Neatorama) mashed up meteorology and mixology to bring you a new installation called Alcoholic Architecture, featuring a walk-in cloud of breathable cocktail.

Talk about immersive alcohol environment: fine spirits and mixer are fed through humidifiers to create air super-saturated with alcohol. Alcohol would enter the bloodstream of the person inside the room through the body's mucus membranes (primarily the lungs, but also the eyeballs).

"With humidity at 140 percent, there is so much alcohol in the air, you can seee less than a metre but the high humidity level enhances flavour perception," Bompas and Parr said about their latest installation, "And by breathing the cocktail, alcohol bypasses the liver allowing you to consume 40 percent less (with correspondingly reduced calories) to feel the same effect."

The installation will arrive in Borough Market, London, later this month. As you can imagine, you need to be of legal drinking age to go into the alcoholic cloud. And as they say - breathe responsibly!

Ethanol vapor creates quite a loud noise when it combusts in a closed space, and quite a flame front in general...this should get interesting.
