MOSCOW: Good news for vodka lovers as you can consume your favourite drink just like any other solid food, without the hassle of carrying heavy glass bottles.

Russian professor Evgeny Moskalev of Saint Petersburg Technological University has evolved a technique that allows turning alcohol into powder and packing it in pills. The new technique can solidify any kind of alcohol, including whisky, cognac, wine and beer.

"Dry" vodka can be wrapped in paper and carried around in a pocket or a bag. Vodka in form of a pill would come handy at parties when "consumers" would be able to calculate their exact required dosage.

"Three Cheers" would be the first words that may comes out of your mouth after reading this news! But after second thought it is hard to imagine popping two pills while on a night out with friends. Because, drinking with friends is more of a social activity rather than a activity with a deadline.

Then who will it benefit ? I guess heart patient, because doctors can now (or will) say "Take these 2 pills daily". Now perhaps we can say "Three Cheers".
