Someone Invented a Cloud That Rains Tequila


It’s the genius invention you never knew you needed, and now, it’s here. The Mexico Tourism Board has teamed up with creative agency LAPIZ to create the tequila cloud. As in, a cloud that rains tequila.

The intoxicating masterpiece is currently on display at an art gallery in Berlin, and it’s meant to lure German tourists to the beaches of Mexico. If it rains in Berlin, the tequila cloud, which is synced up to local weather parents, will also “rain.”

There are some downsides, though. For starters, the cloud isn’t able to travel outside the gallery…because, in case you forgot, it’s not a real cloud. Which means that unless you’ve suddenly found yourself in possession of a ticket overseas, it might be a while before you actually get to witness the floating miracle for yourself.

Second, the cloud doesn’t so much “rain” as it does “emit a cloud-like mist.” The LAPIZ team uses ultrasonic humidifiers to vibrate the tequila at a high frequency, transforming the alcohol into mist that’s then shoved into a plastic container.
