Powdered alcohol?

Barry Irby
>I heard Paul Harvey (whom I won't mention by name) talking about some kind of powdered drink mix kids could buy that had powdered alcohol in it and that when mixed the drink had about four percent alcohol.

Now I know that if you put some dried fruit and powdered sugar and yeast in water and wait a while you might get some alcohol, but I'm not advocating that, I was just curious if I could get some of the powdered kind and cut out the drinking. I could just eat it with a spoon and cut out all the trips to the bathroom.

Do we have a chemist present? I thought alcohol was a liquid by nature. Is there any such thing as powdered alcohol?
