Emergen-C issued a warning on Twitter, advising customers not to mix its vitamin supplements with alcohol after photos of a Twitter user’s “quarantini” went viral.
The brand responded to Marilyn Starkloff after she shared an image of what appeared to be a cocktail made of Aviation Gin and a “super orange” flavored Emergen-C.
One packet of the powdered drink supplement contains 1667 percent of the daily recommended dose of Vitamin C.
Making it a hot commodity during any regular flu season and, particularly, amid the coronavirus outbreak.
“Time for a quarantiniii,” she wrote, tagging both the gin brand and its owner, actor and Twitter fiend Ryan Reynolds.
Sadly, instead of a response from the A-lister, Starkloff got a reply from Emergen-C, asking her to kindly knock off her hijinks.
“We do not recommend taking any of our products with alcohol,” it wrote.
However, the liquor brand swooped in to save the day, penning back a lighthearted apology.
“We’re sorry about this @emergenc but also big fans,” Aviation wrote.
The brand later took to Twitter again to share that it does not advise customers to imbibe if they’re feeling under the weather
