Resulting from the handy work of an anonymous person or persons, , a coffee machine in the heart of a city in Ukraine now dispenses vodka.

The dispenser was also outfitted with a variety of mixers including fruit juices.

At about a dollar a shot – other ingredients are extra - the price can’t be beat.

Also, while a vending machine smack dab in the middle of the city may lack the ambience of a club or local lounge, the beverages are available 24/7.

No doubt that’s a big hit with the late night party crowd.

Local officials aren’t thrilled by its appearance, but the only significant action they’ve taken to get rid of it is taping paper over the money slots.

They are investigating how it happened in the first place. Among those being questioned are the vending machine’s owners.

At this time one of the greatest concerns is that there’s a link between the makeshift dispensary and the booming illegal alcohol trade in the Ukraine.

According to the Director of the Ukrainian National Alcohol and Drug Observatory, "every second glass and every second bottle" of liquor there is made illegally.
