Challenge: One shot glass
is filled with water and the other with
The challenge is to get the whiseky
in the glass that has the water and the water
in the glass that has the whiskey without
using any other containers including your mouth.
Preparation: You will need
Two identical shot glasses
One non porous piece of paper, like a playing card.
Water and your choice of spirit.
Solution: Place the non porous paper (
playing card ) on top of the shot of water.
Turn the card and the water shot glass
The paper will stay attached to the shot glass easily.
Now place the water shot glass and card, still
upside down, on top of the shot
of bourbon. Slowly and carefully, pull the playing card just far enough
out to make a small opening between the two glasses. Water,
being heavier than alcohol, will flow into the whisky glass and displace
the whiskey into the water glass.
You have just made the switch.
If you are truly skilled at this liquor switch bar trick, you will
be able to replace the paper between the two shot
glasses and remove the whiskey and put it
back on the bar.
Please make sure that the opening between the glasses is
very small as a large opening will cause the water
and alcohol to mix.
