A new trend on TikTok comes with a bold claim: Add a little baking soda, a pinch of salt, and some water to vodka or tequila, and you won’t be able to taste the alcohol.

The hack originates with TikToker @chixy, who said this “makes it a little too easy to drink.” She starts off with a glass full of ice and fills up her cup about halfway with clear liquor. Then, she adds a splash of mineral water, a tiny pinch of baking soda (“barely any”), and a little bit of salt (again, “barely any”). If you still taste the alcohol, she recommends adding a little more salt.

Since her video was posted on September 4, it has gotten 18 million views and countless people have tried the hack themselves. TikToker @callmebelly took a sip and made a shocked face before concluding, correctly, “That is dangerous.” His video has almost three million views itself. Jenna Hassan of @jenna.hassan also tried it and was just as shocked.

Some commenters were not impressed by this hack, however, pointing out that the combination is basically just the ingredients of club soda, a popular mixer for alcohol. Some swear by this trick, while others say it worked about as well as any other common mixer. Someone on reddit even made a thread about it, poking fun at the creators.

“Next up: ‘let's go crazy and mix alcohol and juice,’” one user joked, alluding to the fact that the hack simply dilutes the alcohol, thus obviously minimizing the taste. But tons of people on TikTok have tried it and are blown away at the results.
