#1 Drop a raisin in champagne if it’s flat to return bubbly-ness.
Fact. Never lose a bottle of champagne again. The best part is, dropping a raisin in doesn’t change the flavor.
#2 Caffeine can sober you up.
Myth. Although caffeine can decrease the amount of sleepiness caused by alcohol, it doesn’t ‘sober you up’ or decrease the amount of alcohol in your system.
#3 Drink one drink an hour to stay sober enough to drive.
Myth. Although the body does on average metabolize alcohol at a rate of one drink an hour, it is only an average. Different bodies process alcohol at different rates, so stay on the safe side and don’t drive.
#4 You can open your beer with a stapler.
Fact. No bottle opener? You’re welcome.
#5 Mixing alcohol gets you more drunk.
Myth. Most people will tell you if you start drinking beer keep drinking beer, otherwise mixing different liquors will make you more drunk. But this is untrue; mixing alcohols might make you sicker, but it won’t make you more or less drunk throughout the night.
#6 Add a few sprinkles to an ice bucket and watch your drink cool off immediately.
Fact. Even a completely warm beer. You’d be amazed at what just a few sprinkles can do.

Fact. Now this one is just plain helpful. You’ll be glad you read this.

Fact. It wouldn’t be a life hack without a tip like this. That cheap bottle of vodka? Add a few ice cubes and blend into a slushee cooler; it’s so fun you’ll forget how bad it tastes.
