Get Carried Away on the Cocktail Cloud

The first breathable cocktail is set to float in to Borough Market right here in London. “Alcoholic Architecture,” as the project is being called comes from Bompas & Parr, a studio specialized in flavour-based experience design, culinary research, architectural installations and contemporary food design. The installation is the world’s first “alcoholic weather system for your tongue where meteorology and mixology collide,” according to the creators. The cloud of breathable cocktail is a particularly innovative project that allows visitors to get the same effect of a regular cocktail but with 40% less alcohol content (and less calories as well!).

The event, set to launch to the public on July 31st, will take Borough Market as its stage but the gothic cathedral next to it as inspiration. There will be a drinking list of spirits and beers created by monks: Chartreuse, Benedictine, Trappist beer and even Buckfast, a fortified wine with caffeine that might even be legally prohibited in Scotland.

Visitors to the cloud will only be able to breathe in the drink for up to an hour each day, but a full list of great cocktails will be waiting for them when they get out. These will complement the taste left by the cocktail in the cloud.
