Sneaky life hacks are an absolute pleasure for everyone, so we decided to provide you with an ongoing list of our favorite boozy life hacks. Have a look, order a few beverages and hack your life to create the optimal drinking experience.
Close your eyes, and imagine taking the first sip of a beer. You imagine it cold and crisp right? Unfortunately, sometimes the only thing you have on hand is your backup stock of warm beer. Warm beer is literally so not chill. Luckily, we have a trick for you. Wrap cold, wet paper towels around a few beers and stick them in the freezer for 5-10 minutes. They will come out as cold as a beer that’s been on ice for hours.
Never serve a guest a warm beer again.
Never serve yourself a warm beer again.
Forget warm beer even exists.

Iced Out Nicely 🥶
Obviously a koozie is the simplest way to keep a can of beer cold, but what about when you’re drinking from a pint glass? Whip up a few beer ice cubes to keep your beer cold without watering it down. It’s most successful with low ABV beers. Otherwise, the cubes won’t freeze due to high alcohol content. Iced out nicely, yup, in my white tee, oh, cold beer please, mm, so tasty!
Cold and flavorful beer for a longer period of time. Need I say more?

The Grape Escape 🍇
Carrying on along the same wavelength, it seems like common practice for people to toss a few ice cubes into a glass of white wine or rosé to maintain the ultimate chill. The downside? You water down a tasty glass of white. The alternative? Escape the possibility of watered-down wine by freezing some grapes and using them in place of ice cubes.
You won’t water down your wine.
You’ll have the satisfaction of cold wine.
The flavor stays flavorful.

Carbonation Maintenance 🥄
After you pop a bottle of bubbly there are two possibilities: drink it fast or accidentally let it turn flat and nasty. It’s hard to be all about the bubbly when there’s no bubbles. Luckily, there’s a way to keep the bubbly bubbling. Place a metal spoon into the bottle with the handle down the neck to maintain the carbonation of your sparkling wine, prosecco, or champagne. The metal from the spoon handle cools the air inside of the bottle so the bubbles can’t escape.
Bubbles for mimosas in the morning AND after-work drinks from the same bottle.
You can ALWAYS be about that bubbly.
It’s mad easy to put a spoon in a bottle.
