But before you go opening bottles and popping corks, take a look at some of the Internet’s best boozy hacks! And as always, please enjoy these hacks responsibly! Now, on with the hacks!

First up: Skittles vodka.

I can personally attest to this hack working well as long as you actually separate all of the colors and don’t just pour an entire package of Skittles into the vodka. If you do that, you end up with a bottle of muddy-colored sugarbooze slurry.

Chill out.

Problem: You white wine is room temp. Solution: Pop some frozen grapes in there! (No judgment from me if you do this with red wine, too.)

Make your ice fancy!

If you have a little extra time on your hands, you can make these gorgeous flowery ice cubes. The Internet says to use distilled water (or boil tap water) to ensure the ice is clear.

Balloons!

If you don’t have time to make your own flowery ice, using frozen water balloons is another fun and festive option for keeping your drinks cool! This next alco-hack combines two of our favorite things!

Time for some candy!

If you soak gummy bears in vodka, they will absorb the alcohol and become boozy snacks for you to enjoy. (P.S. – Make sure you’re drinking plenty of water when you eat these sugary snacks to avoid a hangover!)

You can do the same thing with melon balls!

Adding a few vodka-infused melon balls is a surefire way to take your drink to the next level. It’ll definitely impress all of your friends, too!

Wine slushie? Yes please.

  via Pinterest  

What if I told you that you could make a wine slushie using only two ingredients? You’d probably go out and buy those two ingredients immediately, right? Well, all you need is some frozen fruit and wine (duh)! Blend that stuff up and enjoy!

A walking margarita?!

I don’t know who came up with this idea, but I’d love to give them a handshake. Or maybe a hug.

Ooh, science!

  via Pinterest  

Fair warning: If you do this with multiple colors of ice cubes, you’re gonna end up with a muddy-colored sugarbooze slurry (yep, again). But it’ll probably still taste good, so do with that info what you will. This next boozy hack is a great source of vitamin C!

Boozy fruit is the best fruit.

  via Pinterest  

Cut a hole in an orange’s peel, then insert the neck of one of those travel-size vodka containers. The fruit will soak up the alcohol and become a sweet, fruity, boozy treat that’s also a part of a complete, balanced breakfast*. *You should probably not eat this for breakfast.

More fancy ice cubes!

  via Pinterest  

Freeze fruit in ice cubes to add some flavor to your drink! Bonus hack: Use wine as the liquid, then add the ice to a glass of wine. As it melts, you’ll get sangria!

And speaking of sangria…

  via Pinterest  

Here’s a failsafe way to make it when you’re camping. Because you should never be too far from some sangria, ya know?

Need to cool something quickly?

  via Pinterest  

Wrap it in a wet paper towel and stick it in your freezer for 10–15 minutes. The people of the Internet swear this cools your beverage off faster.

Here’s an ultra fancy hack.

OK, I know it’s kind of obvious, but just in case you haven’t thought of this already, you can make your own crushed ice pretty easily with a strong Ziploc bag and a rolling pin! This next drink hack is a good one to keep in mind for the 4th of July!

Another icy option.

We’ve talked a lot about different ways to keep your beverages cold, but we haven’t mentioned popsicles yet. They’re perfect! It’s ice you can eat!

Easier Jell-O shots!

  via Pinterest  

Refrigerate your Jell-O shots with a cherry in the center! It makes it easy to pick them up and pop ’em right in your mouth hole.

Shoo, fly!

  via Pinterest  

Use a cupcake liner to protect your precious bevvies from bugs and other critters. (This obviously works for both boozy drinks and regular old non-boozy drinks alike!)

Use the tools around you.

  via Pinterest  

The lines on a Solo cup can be used as measurement guides! And all this time you’ve just been flipping them.

No shaker? No problem!

  via Pinterest  

If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, you can create your own by putting some holes in the lid of a Mason jar. Pretty brilliant, right? Share this list of hacks with someone you want to get your drink on with this summer!
