While it’s undoubtedly an interesting trick if it does work, the question remains as to why anyone would drink Tequila if they didn’t like the flavour in the first place.

This was certainly the sentiment among many commenters.

“[Watching] the brainiacs of TikTok ‘invent’ a new way to minimize the taste of alcohol by adding baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), salt, and sparkling water. AKA: the literal ingredients of club soda.” One wrote.

“I drink tequila to taste the tequila…” Another commenter added.

What do you think? Interesting hack, or just drink something else?
