I thought I've seen it all.

Now I'd be lying if I said I've never gotten tipsy on the couch with a bag of Doritos and a 6-pack. But that's, like, me at my worst. Not an area I've thought about optimizing efficiency.


But if you like the idea of getting drunk on your snack chips, then boy, have I got some good news for you: Doritos has teamed up with a liquor company to create a special edition 'Nacho Cheese Spirit' which is due to be released early next year.

Furrowing your brow yet? Yeah, me too.

The liquor supposedly mirrors the iconic cheesiness of Doritos. It was somehow crafted using real chips and alcohol, and according to a press release from PepsiCo, can be savored neat in a glass, or used to make various questionable cocktails.


Empirical is the liquor company doing the heavy lifting on this. They're a company known for their innovative and unconventional approach to alcoholic beverages:

Empirical is an 'uncategorized' spirits company, so it allows us the freedom to experiment... And we can take something that has a unique and amazing flavor, like Doritos, and evolve it into something completely new.



The exclusive, bizarre booze is expected to ship sometime around the New Year and will be available in select markets around New York. Pre-orders were available online, but they are currently sold out.

Oh, and the price? $65 a bottle. And I thought the price of a bag was expensive.
