The Redbull Can Trick

Watch and have a drink with us.

What you will need:

  • One Redbull can
  • One glass
  • Ice

What to do:

  1. Slightly dampen your pouring hand with a piece of ice or water.
  2. Start with your pouring hand in a bent position.
  3. Push the Redbull can into your bent palm and slowly flatten hand as you apply pressure. Continue until you feel the suction between your hand and the bottom of the can.
  4. Test the suction by turning the can vertically upside down.
  5. Turn back upright and crack the can.
  6. Pour the can into a glass, bath in the envy of your friends thinking you’re Houdini.

The Cocktail Waterfall

Watch and have a drink with us.

What you will need:

  • Four matching glasses
  • Four different coloured cocktails or liquids
  • Five cocktail shakers
  • Ice

What to do:

  1. To begin fill the first shaker with ice, place the second shaker on top and use the width of the glass as the correct measurement. If you need to remove or add more ice do so and then continue with the other shakers to create a stack.
  2. Leave the last shaker empty.
  3. Line the glasses up so the rims are just touching.
  4. Fill the shakers each with a glass worth of liquid, or even better a cocktail!
  5. Push down hard holding the top shaker and the first shaker and keep tension.
  6. Time to get pouring! Hold the shaker stack over the glasses carefully, they should all line up above one glass. Slowly begin to tilt the shaker stack and pour out the liquid, watching as each cocktail fills up a glass.
  7. Now sit back and let everyone at the party believe that you’re as handsome as Tom Cruise from the block buster movie Cocktail!
