Powdered alcohol approved to hit store shelves

(NBC) -

It's not quite like turning water into wine -- but it's close. 

Powdered alcohol, also called "palcohol," could hit store shelves as soon as this summer. 

The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau has approved the product from Arizona-based "Lipsmark."

The alcohol comes in powdered form and can be added to water to make a cocktail.

While some herald the product's convenience, others suggest the product could make it way too easy to binge drink.

Some states have indicated they will ban it, including California, Florida and New York.
