Life Hacks: The Alcoholic Guide To Better Drinking

So you really like drinking, but have been either doing it wrong your whole life or still have not found the proper way to drink/hacks to do so.


Here are some of those hacks:

Worried about hangovers?

Prepare earlier by taking a multivitamin.

If you forget, drinking orange juice afterwards can do the same thing. 

Forget to chill drink?

Wrap in wet paper towel and stick in the freezer for 15 minutes—it will be chilled instantly.

You can also add salt to a bucket of ice to chill beer faster.

Too low of a tolerance?

Drink warm water in between every drink or take a shot of olive oil before drinking to slow down your tolerance.

Ask the bartender to give you a tonic water. It taste like shit, but the shitty taste can fool a drunk into thinking it’s a vodka and tonic which is good enough to buy you some time until you’re ready for your next drink.

Want to love Fireball like you did when you were in high school?

Chase it with a sip of orange Vitamin Water. It’s oddly great.

Don’t think you like whiskey?

Chase it with a touch of Coke—it will taste just like vanilla Coke.

Don’t have Coke? A little splash of water helps dilute the strong alcohol taste and enhances the whiskey flavor…if you’re into that kinda thing.

White Wine Lover? 

Freeze grapes to keep wine chilled while not watering it down.

If you don’t have a bottle opener on you, you can use a shoe with a hard shoe to open the bottle. Put the bottle in where you would slide your foot and smash the heel of the shoe onto a hard and sturdy surface like a brick wall. After a few forceful hits, you should notice the cork to start to come out and you can wiggle the rest out with your fingers. No more using a steak knife!!

Vodka Lover? 

Dump a bottle into a bowl of candy like Skittles, Starbursts, Jolly Ranchers, gummy bears, or Sour Patch Kids. Add a splash of Sprite and you’ll thank us later.

Beer Lover Who Hates Foam?

Take a note out of the Bro Playbook and dip your finger in the foam.
