    30 Brilliant Ways To Hack Your Booze

    Because if you spend too much time finding/opening/chilling your alcohol, you won't have as much time to drink it.

    1. Keep your pitcher cold yet undiluted with a plastic cup of ice.

    2. Or the bottom half of a two-liter bottle.

    Just cut the plastic bottle in half, fill with ice water and garnishes, and put in the liquor bottle.

    3. Or in salted ice.

    This'll get your beverage cold in a hurry.

    4. Or with frozen grapes.

    5. Or nature.



    8. Or a boat.

    Who doesn't have a spare boat filled with ice, is my question.

    9. Freeze your leftover* wine to use in sauces.


    10. Keep your beers neatly stacked in the fridge with a binder clip.

    21. Make a delightful memento out of a champagne cork.

    Perfect for the littlest dinner party!

    22. Create your own R2-Booze2.

    23. Use a rake to cheaply and easily store wine glasses.
