I can’t believe these words are coming out of my figurative mouth but, mixing alcohol with Emergen-C isn’t going to help your immune system.
It was inevitable with everyone couped up in their house, looking for any hope of immunity to the festering pandemic, that someone would look around their kitchen as they were having their third boredom-fueled drink of the night, see some Emergen-C, and think to double down on their next drink.
It didn’t take long for the idea to flood social media, prompting the brand to make it abundantly clear that this quarantine hack was nothing but a quarantine hoax.
Even so, the idea of an immune system boosting alcoholic beverage makes sense on some level, and the Foodbeast Slack lit up when the idea was posted.
That is, until my fellow Foodbeast writer and food science degree possessor, Constantine Spyrou, Euro-stepped his way through the messages to dunk on the thought of a ‘quarantini’.
There’s a reason this man has a series called Ask Costa, people. The man has the answers.
So take it from Costa, and Emergen-C themselves, and leave the Super Orange powder in your kitchen’s catch-all drawer, and out of the booze.
