Palcohol, a new powdered alcohol product, could be popping up at store near you this fall.

According to the company's website, the powdered alcohol comes in six flavors, including Mojito; Powderita (a play on a Margarita), Cosmopolitan, Lemon Drop, V, made from a distilled vodka and R, whipped up with Puerto Rican Rum. Each pouch contains the amount of one shot of alcohol.

To make one of the cocktails, you simply mix it with water-except for the V and R which should be served with a mixer. It can also be added to food. The company has experimented adding Powderita to guacamole, for example.

Several news stories published reports that the product had been approved by the Alcohol and tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), but there was one slight issue. Palcohol released a statement Tuesday saying, "We have been in touch with the TTB and there seemed to be a discrepancy on our fill level, how much powder is in the bag. There was a mutual agreement for us to surrender the labels. This doesn't mean that Palcohol isn't approved. It just means that these labels aren't approved. We will re-submit labels. We don't have an expected approval date as label approval can vary widely."

Once that happens, the product is expected to hit stores this fall.
