Pocket Camp, the mobile take on Animal Crossing, is radiating some heavy wine mom energy recently with the addition of a special event item called “vacation juice.” The funny thing is, vacation juice sure looks a whole lot like a mixed alcohol drink.

Why not just call it what it is? Well, likely it has to do with Animal Crossing’s audience, which definitely includes minors. It’s not uncommon for children’s media to include stuff that seems like alcohol, only for it to be called something else — and that’s likely what happened here.

Whatever it is, I need Isabelle to pass the pitcher.
