Alcohol, the great social lubricant, no longer is invited to some bars and parties. Instead, so-called smart drinks, often brightly colored fruit cocktails, have replaced it as the focal point in a number of social settings. The trend started in San Francisco and Los Angeles with "rave parties"--huge underground affairs held in abandoned warehouses. Instead of alcohol, revelers tank up on "Power Punch," "IQ Booster," "Psuper Psonic Psyber Tonic" (or "Tang With a Bang") and "Energy Elicksure."

Would that it were so easy. Well, how would you like to get smarter merely by popping a pill? Or by knocking back a fruit-flavored drink with a name such as "IQ Booster"?
