People Are Just Realizing the Lid Hats on Tequila Bottles Have a Function

There's a time and a place for tequila shots, which is usually 2 a.m. in a dimly lit room somewhere.

Despite drinking the spirit for years, some alcohol fans have only just discovered the lids of the Sierra tequila bottles, which come in the shape of hats, serve an actual purpose.

Nino Purtseladze, who calls herself realrijaxa online, shared a video on Wednesday that has already been watched more than three million times, after finally realizing the hats are more than just decorative.

It shows Purtseladze with a bottle of the alcohol sporting its trademark hat, which varies in color depending on what variety you're drinking.

It shows her pouring salt into the hat's wide brim. She then grabs a shot glass and rubs a lime wedge around the rim, as is tradition.

Purtseladze then salts the rim by dipping it into the hat brim—demonstrating how its size perfectly matches a standard shot glass.

"Life hack I guess," she captioned the clip.

People have been going wild for the tip online, claiming they never realized the hat had a functional use.

"Who knew!! Game changer," raved Blake Roberts.

AlexiLu said: "Omg a genius."

Billy Jose commented: "My whole life is a lie."

Surprised, Raymund Galindo wrote: "Hahah oh my! So... that has purpose?"

Vika Wilwer admitted: "This makes so much sense wow."

Bram's Crighton commented: "You're joking how did I not process this."

"No way I've drank this for 30 years never knew," Kerry Latimer said.

While Nils revealed the hat could have a second function, saying: "The hat is actually a lemon press."

It seems they're not the only ones using it on citrus fruit, as Skyleejeffrey commented: "I thought it was for juicing a lime but this makes more sense.

In other food and drink news, Heinz is looking for its first ever "burger artist," who'll get to sample the best burgers across the country.

The famous sauce company will send the applicant on four two-night trips and the lucky foodie will get $25,000 and free condiments for life.

The artist and a friend will get sent to Puerto Rico along with two other destinations of their choice within the U.S.—including Hawaii and Alaska. They'll receive $500 of spending money for each city.

To have a shot at becoming the next official artist, all you need to do is submit a brilliant idea for a delicious burger via the official website, Twitter or Instagram, using the hashtag #ArtoftheBurger.

There are seven categories—ketchup, mustard, mayo, BBQ, flavor combinations, relish and freestyle.

Newsweek reached out to Purtseladze for comment.
