Mom’s Leftover Cocktail Hack Goes Viral; Netizens Call Her A Genius For The Idea

Many of us have been there: you order a delicious cocktail at a restaurant, but by the time the main course arrives, you’re feeling pleasantly full. The dilemma? What to do with the unfinished drink? Do you leave it to go to waste, feeling a pang of guilt at the money wasted on a perfectly good beverage? Fear not, fellow thrifty revellers, for a recent viral video of the cocktail hack offers a solution that’s as ingenious as it is hilarious!

The Instagram reel, posted by @jordanflom, features a woman who has clearly inherited the “waste not, want not” spirit. The video opens with a shot of a restaurant table, a half-finished cocktail gleaming in the light. Our protagonist, with a mischievous glint in her eye and the caption “Mum can’t leave anything behind,” proceeds to execute a masterclass in leftover-saving.

In a move that’s sure to resonate with anyone who’s ever packed a questionable Tupperware container for lunch, she deftly transfers the remaining cocktail from her glass into a takeaway container – the kind typically used for leftover food. But wait, there’s more! With a flourish worthy of a seasoned bartender, she then tips the leftover liquid from the jug the drink came in, into the same takeaway container.

The pièce de resistance? She carefully pokes a straw through the edge of the container, takes a triumphant sip, and then, with the container held precariously in her hand, walks out of the restaurant, presumably to enjoy the rest of her concoction in the comfort of her own home.

The Internet, of course, has erupted in laughter and amusement. The video has garnered thousands of views and comments, with many viewers expressing their amusement and (perhaps) admiration for the woman’s resourcefulness.  Comments like “Everyone laughs until they get home and are asking grandma for some of that margarita from the restaurant” perfectly capture the relatable spirit of the video.

Of course, there are those who point out the potential downsides. Hygiene concerns and the legalities of taking open alcohol out of a licenced establishment are valid points. But for many, the video serves as a lighthearted reminder of the lengths we’ll go to to save a delicious drink – and the Internet certainly can’t get enough of it.
