Ever since we did our initial story on the canned blackout that is known as Four Loko, we can't stop hearing about the stuff. Is it just perception, like when you get a new car and suddenly see them all over the roads, or is there some kind of media saturation going on with the stuff? Either way, that's not what we're here to talk about. We're here to talk about the fact that even though it's being banned six ways from Sunday, people have figured out how to make their own blackout juice.
That's right - the folks over at BuzzFeed have made their own homebrew Four Loko, involving watermelon Jolly Ranchers, caffeine pills, malt liquor, Sprite and energy drink. In other words, pretty much exactly what we would have thought the real stuff contains, if we'd ever stopped to think about it. Check out the recipe and watch the results of their blind taste tests with the real stuff here.
Oh and also - if you're contemplating making the stuff for yourself, maybe the "honest advertising" video from College Humor after the jump will help you make the right decision. Thanks to interns Tom and Andrew for letting us know about these two awesome pieces of Web history.
