Grab your rim-salted margarita glass and your galoshes because there is now a cloud that can answer all of your Happy Hour prayers.
The Mexico Tourism Board and the creative agency LAPIZ have partnered to create a manmade cloud that produces raindrops of actual tequila.

The boozy puff was developed as a promotional stunt to attract German tourists to Mexico and was put on display at an art gallery in Berlin called Urban Spree.
Unfortunately, the cloud can't float freely and meet you at your favorite bar. It's actually formed by a tequila-based mist held together by a plastic container to help it keep its fluffy cloud shape. According to The Huffington Post, the LAPIZ team used ultrasonic humidifiers to "vibrate" the tequila at a rate that turns the alcohol into a visible mist that is filtered into the container.

The vapor of the tequila then condenses inside of the plastic and drops from the cloud. It was also synched with the local weather patterns so when it rained in Berlin, the tequila poured down, too.
Drinkers can hold their glasses under the cloud for an alcoholic rain shower shot. If that seems like too much work to get your buzz, there is a spout beneath the cloud for anyone who doesn't want to wait for the storm.

We predict that we'll see this cool cloud trick tried by amateur bartenders everywhere before your next crawl.
It's 5 o'clock somewhere and it might just be in the clouds.
