(Gray News) – It’s a clever play on words, but the folks at Emergen-C aren’t endorsing the internet ‘quarantini’ fad.
Social media has been flooded with the notion of a quarantine martini or quarantini.
Marilyn Starkloff posted a picture of the concoction to her Twitter account.
“Time for a quarantiniii,” she said.
To which Emergen-C replied, “We do not recommend taking any of our products with alcohol.”
The people at Aviation American Gin embraced the libation.
“We're sorry about this @emergenc but also big fans,” the liquor company said on Twitter.
Later, Aviation backed off, just a bit, on its endorsement of the quarantini.
“While everyone should take precaution during these times we do not recommend having a 'Quarantini' or any alcohol if you're feeling under the weather,” the Ryan Reynolds-owned liquor brand said.
“If you're feeling fine and of legal drinking age, a little extra Vitamin C consumption doesn't hurt.”
