Woman posts hack to ‘make alcohol taste like water’ and warns ‘it can be dangerous’

A woman shared an “alcohol hack” that could make hard liqueur taste like water – but she warned it could be dangerous if you’re not careful enough.

TikTok user “Chixy38” came up with the trick a long time ago as it was supposed to make the alcohol “easier to drink”.

“So I know for sure this works for tequila and vodka,” she says as she brings out a bottle of tequila.

“I want to say it works for anything dark like Hennessey but I can’t remember because it’s been such a long time since I’ve done it.”

To start with, she pours the tequila into an ice-filled tumbler and adds mineral water in.

‘Chixy’ said the trick can be dangerous because it would get rid of the alcohol taste in the drink

The woman continues: “Then you are going to use baking soda, I know it seems weird but hold on, not too much, like barely any. And little salt, barely any, okay?”

With all the ingredients in, she gives the mix a gentle shake and invites her husband for a drink test.

She explains: “I already know what it’s gonna taste like but here, Martin’s going to try it. Can you taste the tequila?”

Martin takes a big gulp down and shakes his head, telling his wife: “Nothing. Yeah, what the hell?”

“Chixy” then tells her viewers to be careful when trying out the hack, adding: “It will taste like water. Tequila, vodka – you can drink it and it will taste like water. It’s too easy to drink. I’m just letting you know.”

The TikTok video has raked in 17 million views – and many who tried said it worked.

“I actually tried this just then and this is 10/10 fact. I did it with gin,” one wrote.

A second commented: “It works oh my God!”

But some said the hack would only be suitable for people who hate drinking alcohol.

“I want the alcohol taste! That’s part of the reasons I drink,” a viewer said.

Always drink responsibly.

According to the NHS, men and women are advised not to drink more than 14 units a week on a regular basis.

They advise: “Spread your drinking over 3 or more days if you regularly drink as much as 14 units a week.

“If you want to cut down, try to have several drink-free days each week.”

Fourteen units is equivalent to 6 pints of average-strength beer or 10 small glasses of low-strength wine.
