Alcohol MIST Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What's so great about Alcohol MIST?

A: Alcohol MIST is designed to allow you to experience the fun parts of drinking alcohol while minimizing the bad parts. With Alcohol MIST shots, you can have a great buzz all night with a much lower chance of having a hangover the next day. At 1/60th the amount of a normal shot of liquor, Alcohol MIST  may even mitigate the possible health issues stemming from the consumption of alcohol in liquid form. Other social effects of Alcohol MIST may include decreases in drunk driving, resulting in a reduced number of auto accidents and saving lives.

Q: Why does an Alcohol MIST shot only last 30 minutes and why is that a better way to enjoy alcohol?

A: Alcohol MIST shots contain very little alcohol, but enough to give you an instant buzz and make you feel like you just drank a liquid shot of alcohol, but because it’s just a fraction of the amount, less than a single drop, it only lasts about 30 minutes. People may think that is a bad thing but in reality it’s a good thing. Each time you take a drink, the alcohol level in your blood is increased. When this happens you feel a buzz or rather a more intense sensation. However in drinking, since the alcohol stays in your body for hours, you have to keep drinking larger and larger amounts to feel a buzz again, essentially you have to keep upping the ante to reach the next level. This is exactly how people over consume and become sick or get a hangover the next day. With Alcohol MIST, you feel the buzz immediately and after about 30 minutes you are back at lower levels, which means when you consume another Alcohol MIST shot you will immediately feel the buzz again. The idea is to experience the buzz and fun of consuming alcohol, not soak your body with it.

Q: Will I still be able to taste the liquor using Alcohol MIST?

A: Yes. Alcohol MIST helps bring out the flavor of the liquor. It makes it much more aromatic and smooth.

Q: Will using different types or proofs of liquor matter?

A: Yes. The higher the proof the stronger effect. Also the more flavorful the brand, the more flavorful the Alcohol MIST shot will be. Please note an 80 proof Alcohol MIST shot will produce about a 0.05 level on a breathalyzer test. If your tolerance is higher than that, you may want to use a higher proof alcohol in your Alcohol MIST machine. Bars and clubs are typically using alcohol between 80 and 100 proof.

Q: What is the operational noise level for the Alcohol MIST machine?

A: When the Alcohol MIST machine is on it is silent normally. When you use it to serve Alcohol MIST shots it will be about 55db, which is like a normal human conversation, pretty quiet. Then when done it goes back to being silent, even when it’s on.

Q: Just how much liquor is in an Alcohol MIST shot?

A: 1/60th of a 1oz shot equating to 0.49 ml or less than a single drop of alcohol.

Q: How can so little alcohol have an effect?

A: Alcohol MIST introduces the alcohol directly into the blood stream through the lungs, which is very efficient. Normally when you take a drink, it has to go into your mouth, down your throat, into your stomach, then intestines and finally into your bloodstream to your lungs and brain. That takes a long time and a whole lot more alcohol to have the same effect.

Q: Can someone overdose on alcohol vapors from Alcohol MIST?

A: That’s highly unlikely. Even if you consumed an Alcohol MIST shot every 10 minutes, it is still way below the set safety levels detailed by OSHA for inhaling ethyl alcohol. In fact the OSHA standard provides for increasing higher levels of ethyl alcohol inhalation for eight continues hours, which would be nearly impossible for Alcohol MIST to exceed.

Q: Can I take multiple Alcohol MIST shots one after another and get really wasted?

A: Each Alcohol MIST shot only lasts about 25 to 30 mins. It leaves the body much faster than drinking so it’s hard to accumulate a lot of it like drinking. If you are trying to consume one after another, by the fifth one you are consuming, most of the first one is already mostly out of your system. Please note each Alcohol MIST shot consists of less than a single drop of alcohol.

Q: What's your response to doctor's concerns about inhaling alcohol and that the lungs cannot expel excess amounts?

A: What the doctors are concerned with is large volumes of alcohol in the lungs. Alcohol MIST shots only contain about 1/60th of a normal 1oz shot, less than a single drop of alcohol, so there is really not that much to start with in the first place.

Q: Are there any calories in an Alcohol MIST shot?

A: Yes, but since an Alcohol MIST shot  is only about 1/60th of a 1oz shot of liquid alcohol, it only has about 1/60th the calories also.

Q: What needs to be done to maintain the Alcohol MIST system?

A: Alcohol MIST is a sealed system so nothing can get in. Once it is out of liquor, you can unscrew the internal container and just add more liquor and then reseal it. If you want to change flavors, just pour in some of warm water and use the system to rinse it out and it’s ready for the next flavor. Alcohol MIST systems are very easy to use and low maintenance.

Q: How fast can an Alcohol MIST machine make a shot?

A: Depending on the model of Alcohol MIST system, it can take anywhere from 5 seconds to 10 seconds.

Q: Can an Alcohol MIST home system be used commercially?

A: While the Alcohol MIST home system is constructed out of the highest quality components available like the commercial version, it is not designed for continuous high-volume use. It is slower than the commercial version and may shut down if it becomes overheated, causing permanent damage. Using an Alcohol MIST home system in a commercial setting such as a bar or club will void all warranty and support. It will also eliminate any rights to purchase replacement parts or supplies.

Q: Can the Alcohol MIST system work with beer or wine?

A: Alcohol MIST cannot be used with beer as it will spew everywhere when opened because of the carbonation, but it will work with wine. Please note when using wine the effects will be diminished because of the lower alcohol content (proof)

Q: Why does the Alcohol MIST system cost what it does?

A: We had to use medical and food grade components to meet our desired safety levels. We simply did not want to cheap out on this because it’s for human consumption and needs to be as safe as possible.

Q: What is the warranty and support for the Alcohol MIST system?

A: All Alcohol MIST systems come with a one (1) year warranty and one (1) year technical support.
