We’ve all been there: You walk into the liquor store, greet the clerk, gaze longingly at the best bottles of vodka, only to leave with the cheapest jug you can afford. Sure, it’s nice on your wallet, but is that bottle really worth the unavoidable burning sensation in your stomach?
If only there were a better way…
Now there is. With this simple hack, you can turn even the worst vodka into a better quality spirit that goes down easy. All you need is a bottle of your favorite cheap vodka and a Brita filter.
Simply run your cheap vodka through the Brita filter at least four times, and you’ll be left with a smoother, easier-to-drink product.
All vodkas are filtered to some degree during distillation, with higher-quality products being filtered more to create a smoother and easier drinking experience. But with this simple trick, you can transform the crappiest vodka to drinkable quality. And no worries for you flavored-vodka drinkers, it works for that too.
