Nifty Whisky to Water Trick Wins Bets Every Time

DO THIS ANY time you’re in a pub or club and you find someone who doesn’t mind a little punt. And doesn’t know this trick!

Challenge: One shot glass is filled with water and the other with whisky.

The challenge is to get the whisky in the glass that has the water and the water in the glass that has the whisky without using any other containers including your mouth.


  1. Place the non porous paper (like a playing card, driver’s licence, credit card etc) on top of the shot of water.
  2. Turn the card and the water shot glass round carefully.
  3. The paper will stay attached to the shot glass easily.
  4. Now place the water shot glass and card, still upside down, on top of the shot of bourbon.
  5. 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 whisky into the water glass.

You have just made the switch!

If you are truly skilled at this bar trick, you will be able to replace the paper between the two shot glasses and remove the whisky and put it back on the bar to complete this impressive bar magician trick.

Please make sure that the opening between the glasses is very small as a large opening will cause the water and alcohol to mix.
