“A man does not exist until he is drunk.” -Ernest Hemingway
Don Draper drinks an Old Fashioned because he’s a man. Rocky Balboa drank his protein shakes—five raw eggs—for strength. Phil drank sweet vermouth because it was Rita’s favorite libation in Groundhog’s Day (he was trying to get her into bed)…
Wahh is the invention of David Edwards, the Harvard professor whose inhalable caffeine and smokable chocolate have appeared on this site before. Edwards’s line of “breathable food sprays” (yum!) called Quantum Sensations includes Aeroshot, a vaporizing caffeine inhaler that received over $8.5 million in venture funding earlier this year. Edwards collaborated with French designer Philippe Starck to bring us the latest Quantum Sensation, Wahh, which debuted last week in Paris.
About $26 will buy you a Wahh canister, which contains around 25 “puffs” of vaporized alcohol. Hold the lipstick-sized tube up to your mouth, breath in, and a burst of Vodka-flavored mist delivers a dizzying sensation. The feeling fades within seconds, leaving you sober enough to pass a breathalyzer test.
