5 Drinking Hacks You Should KnowWritten by David MasifonPosted on 03 15, 2018
Life hacks are those simply creative things we do to make living easy – drinking hacks make drinking way easier and bring life to your party.
Pulling off a hack when you and your friends meet up for a drinkathon can immediately give you the Black Panther title among them.
We have selected five(5) hacks that you can use to step up your drinking experience.
The Disposable Cooler
This hack involves using a waste bag inside a beer or soda case (not a crate) – you can also use a TV case or something of the like. Put some ice into it along with your drinks. Voila! You have yourself a disposable cooler.
Nails & Hammer
So you have a bottle of wine in front of you but there is to wine opener in sight? Two small nails and a hammer can do the job of lifting the cork for you. Simply use your thumb to drive the nails into the cork, then use the end of a hammerhead meant for removing nails to pull out the nail along with the cork.
The Ice Cooler
Some drinks release the best flavours when chilled. So what do you do when you have a drink to chill, but can’t wait 20-25 minutes on a freezer to do the work? Fill a bucket with ice and add just enough water to fill the cracks in that ice. Add salt to the mixture (this lowers the freezing point and let it become super-cold water). Go ahead and rotate your bottle or can of soda, beer, bottled water, or wine for about 2 minutes or more, and your cold drink is ready.
Is your open champagne or sparkling wine running out of fizz? Fear not! Simply add a raisin in your glass and wait a few minutes will save it from going flat.
Wines taste best when you aerate the flavours. No wonder wine glasses are specially shaped to allow the flavours breath and direct them to the nose and palate. To get the best out of your wine (where there is no expensive wine aerator), pour your wine in a blender, blend it for 30 seconds, and settle to savour the best wine tasting experience yet.
