Monkey Island fictitious "Grog" drink believed to be actually consumed by teenagers

Every morning before work, I turn on C5N channel not for the quality of the news, but for the ridiculousness. The segments tend to include:
1. Fútbol players, especially Maradona and Messi
2. Strikes and Protests
3. Traffic problems because of the strikes and protests
4. Dr. Cormillot (more to come later about my favorite TV docta)
5. "Investigative" segment with the same footage on repeat (played about 5 times in 2 hours)

This particular segment struck me as a bit silly... the journalist is describing a new drink that many teens make to get very drunk before going out. This drink is called "Grog XD" and may sound familiar to any Monkey Island video game fans...Ingredients in the Trago (mixed drink) Grog XD that argie pibes (teens) are supposedly guzzling down:
-Kerosene, Artificial Sweeteners, Sulfuric Acid, Rum with acetone, Red Dye #2, Axel grease and battery acid.
