Time to get a little personal for this one, folks. It’s the season of Christmas and while there are many things I love about this time of the year, there’s one oddly peculiar thing I do not enjoy about it at all. I don’t know about the rest of you, but between coworkers and friends of the family, I suddenly find myself in possession of three bottles of Bailey’s and three bottles of vodka by New Year’s Eve.

Don’t get me wrong, I like vodka from time to time. But I don’t like having a gallon of the stuff I have to consume by this time next year in order to prepare my liquor cabinet for the next wave. Perhaps someone over at Buzzfeed shares my struggle, because they just came out with 7 surprising vodka hacks. Now I know what I’m going to do with that 40 of Smirnoff I was most likely not going to drink.
