Four Loko holiday balls - you are too good a person to make these
Advertisements [?]

Four Loko - no way you'd have any of that nasty stuff around. First of all, how would you? The sale of the caffeinated malt beverage has been banned in communities around the country. It's been said to cause hallucinations and blackouts, has driven a New York assemblyman to come thisclose to ralphing on camera, and plus? It's just kinda vile-tasting - like "mildly offensive...pured gummi bears," per our associate editor.

You should not make your Christmas cookies with it.

You, as a sane, moral, righteous, productive member of society would never even DREAM of crushing up graham crackers until you had 2 1/2 cups worth of crumbs, mixing those with 2 cups of powdered sugar, then stirring in 1/4 cup of light corn syrup and 2 tablespoon of Rose's Lime Juice (or any other citrus cordial). And heaven knows, you would never even DREAM of adding 1/2 cup fruit punch flavored Four Loko, making sure the mixture is thoroughly blended, then rolling up 1/2 inch balls of it and dredging those in additional powdered sugar. You are not a savage.

And heaven knows - and oh yea and verily all the seraphim within it must as well - that you would never bear these to an elegant holiday soiree where the newly-minted editor-in-chief of Bon Appetit would likely be (and indeed was) in attendance and stand in mute, eventually fruitless hope that he would unwittingly loft one to his learned palate and declare it the finest, most delicious, most festive malt liquor based holiday confection in all the land. Because it totally, totally is.

Not that you'll ever find out for yourself. Unless you're a bad person. (The line forms this way...)
