This trick makes a cheap bottle of vodka taste like Grey Goose

Everyone would love to be able to go to the store and pick up a premium vodka, but not everyone’s budgets will allow for such an indulgence.

But there’s good news for those who want to stock up on booze for the holidays. The lowest quality vodka can apparently be improved with something you probably already have in your kitchen: a water filtering pitcher.

I tested the trick to see if it works. Here’s what happened.

Grab a water filtration pitcher

Good vodka is filtered five or more times usually using a charcoal filter. So, it’s important to make sure that your water pitcher has a charcoal filter. I didn’t already have a water filtering pitcher laying around, so I had to buy one. To make my test a little more scientific, I bought the store-brand pitcher and a name-brand pitcher. They were both around $8.
