Have you ever been sipping on a cocktail and wished it didn’t have that strong taste of alcohol? While some of us would like to pretend to be macho and like it, the reality is that it’d be nice to enjoy a drink without the taste of vodka from time to time.

That’s where this TikTok hack comes in. According to TikTok user @callmebelly, there’s a simple trick to eliminate that alochol taste and it’s easier than you might think.

All you have to do is take some baking soda and a pinch of salt and add it to your beverage. Apparently, the trick is supposed to make the beverage easy to drink and we could certainly see why.

As many people in the comments pointed out, it’s basically like making a DIY club soda.

If you try the hack and the alcohol taste is still strong, you can try adding a touch more salt. The video has received over 2 million views and thousands of comments. Near as we can tell, this trick works like a charm.

Club soda is often used as a mixer for alcohol, so it makes sense that this hack would work since it’s like a DIY club soda.
