Sen. Charles E. Schumer is once again going after the marketing of an alcoholic beverage to children.

The No. 3 Senate Democrat told reporters in New York Monday that he’s concerned about the sale of a new slushy beverage featuring sugar and alcohol, called the “Phrostee,” being sold to children via Instagram. The product has turned up in New York City.

“They seem to be sold online without limitations for age,” Schumer said at a news conference, WCBS-TV reported. “A 12-year-old could probably buy one and get it and enjoy it because it’s filled with fruit punch and fruit juice.”

Schumer’s criticism of the new slushy drinks is reminiscent of his opposition to alcoholic energy drinks, such as the old formulation of Four Loko.

The report from WCBS is posted below:

    WHAT ABOUT THE UNEMPLOYMENT EXTENSION BILL??? THE REPUBLICANS HAVE FAILED THE MORE THAN 2.6 MILLION OF UNEMPLOYED FAMILIES, WHO HAVE BEEN WITHOUT UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS SINCE LAST DECEMBER. THE REPUBLICANS HAVE INTENTIONALLY DELAYED, AND STALLED OVER THE PAST FIVE MONTHS SO THAT THE EXTENSION BILL WILL BECOME TOO LATE TO PASS. THEY HAVE SHOWN A TOTAL LACK OF COMPASSION AND COMMON DECENCY, TOWARDS THESE MILLIONS OF STRUGGLING FAMILIES.

    I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    Together with everything which appears to be building inside this specific subject material, a significant percentage of opinions are actually rather radical. Nevertheless, I am sorry, but I do not subscribe to your entire strategy, all be it stimulating none the less. It looks to us that your commentary are generally not completely rationalized and in fact you are generally your self not fully confident of your point. In any case I did appreciate reading it.
