Bar Tricks Tutorial – Liquid Transfer

Bar Tricks to Make Money – “Liquid Transfer”

[VIDEO TRANSCRIPT – Liquid Transfer Bar Trick Tutorial]

Hi there! For this trick we’re gonna need two shooter glasses and two coins – quarters probably be the best – and the shooter glass should be small in the opening because you have to be able to balance the quarters on the side of the glass. One of the shooters have liquid in it while the other one is empty. What you do is first balance the two quarters on the sides of the shooter glass. Okay, and the bet is i bet you that i could take the contents of this glass – the shooter glass – and exchange it or get into this glass (empty one) so the contents of this glass into this glass without actually touching the glass or the liquid contents. So i want this liquid in this shooter glass without actually touching any of the shooter glasses. There’s the bet. How do you do it? Carefully, you place your finger(forefinger) and your thumb on top of the quarters and you’re going to slide the quarters down gripping firmly so that eventually the quarters will be between your forefingers and your thumb pressing against the side of the glass, so that your fingers will not actually be touching the glass. You might have to practice this a couple of times to get it right. So, i’m going to place my thumb and fore finger and slide the quarters down the glass. You want to grip hard. Put the contents in. And there’s your two quarters. You win.

Balance Forks on Toothpick Bar Trick

Cool Bar Trick – Balance Forks on Toothpick

The balance forks on toothpick bar trick is seriously one of the best bar tricks out there.  Not only can anyone learn it but it’s actually pretty easy to learn and perform once you know how.

THE BET: What you are going to attempt to do is to balance either two forks or a fork and spoon on a toothpick which is itself balanced on the rim of a glass.

And if you want to take it a step further – like we do in the video – add some fire to the mix.  Light the toothpicks on fire to burn them down to the edge.

1:40 – The part about lighting the toothpick on fire is just for showmanship at the end – but it IS very effective.

 

 

[Transcript] Best Bar Trick Ever – Balance Forks on Toothpick | Bets To Do With Toothpicks

Hey, Reese Richards here, from barsandbartending.com with another bar trick to floor you. Ok, for this bar trick, all you need is a fork and a spoon, a glass, and a toothpick. Pretty much any of the pointy toothpicks, or the ones with the end and one point is ok. So, your bet is that you can balance the fork and the spoon, using the toothpick, on the edge of the glass. Ok, you can balance them on the edge of the glass. So, how do you do this? You take the spoon and you intertwine it into the tines of the fork. So, into the middle two tines. Ok, so you want to press it in here, and down a little bit, so you have the two tines here in the middle- the middle two tines- and on the outside here.
Ok? And then, we’re going to take our toothpick, and we’re going to put it on the inside of the middle, right close to the spoon, ok? The middle, close to the spoon… the middle tine. And then you just have to find the right spot on the glass and you should be able to balance it on the toothpick.

But! We’re not going to stop there! So, now that it’s balanced on the toothpick, we’re going to take it a step further. So, if that’s not amazing enough, we’re going to burn the edge of the toothpick on this side. So, make sure it’s steady, and then just light the end of the toothpick. Ok? Don’t worry about the flame, it will burn all the way down, and it should stop when it gets to the glass. Oh, not quite… we can go further than that. Ok, I want to burn the entire edge of that toothpick off. We’re close. We’re almost at the edge. I’d say that’s right about the edge, so that toothpick- right now- is balanced… looks like it’s defying gravity… it’s balanced right on the edge of that glass, and there’s no toothpick left on the other side. Ok?

So, there’s the bar trick. That’s our bar trick for today: balancing the spoon and the fork on a toothpick… on half a toothpick!

My name’s Reese Richards, thanks a lot!

Bar Tricks Revealed – BIG BOX Bar Trick Tutorial [Transcript]

Hey there, Reese Richards from barsandbartending.com with another bar bet. Forewarned, this one’s a little bit cheesy.

Ok, so you have eleven toothpicks or eleven matches and you want them laid out like this… so, you have two squares and then three individual toothpicks or matches, ok? Two squares, three individual toothpicks or matches. And, the bet is… I bet you that you can’t make a big box… a big box, ok?… moving only two of the toothpicks. Ok? A big box moving only two of the toothpicks.

So, let the person try and see what they can do, moving the toothpicks around and around. Ok? And then when they’re giving up, give them a solution. Here it is. I said it was cheesy, ok?

COOL Match Tricks | Floating Match Head Pub Trick

COOL Match Tricks | Floating Match Head Pub Trick

Here’s a bartender magic trick you can pull out at anytime – the floating match head bar trick. This cool match trick is pretty easy to perform – if you have a large thumb!floating match head bar trick

To perform the floating match head pub trick, you’ll need an empty see-through beer bottle filled almost to the top with water as well as some wooden matches.

The Bet: Can you get the match head to sink to the bottom of the bottle without turning the bottle upside down (or using any other materials to shove it down)?

The trick to this pub trick is that you need a fairly large thumb. Your thumb has to completely cover the top of the bottle so that it’s air tight. If your thumb is too small – like mine in this video – it makes it tough to force the air down and thereby force the match head to the bottom.

Practise this bartender magic trick before going out and betting someone. As you can see from the video, it’s not as easy as it may seem at first.

Try it with a single match head and then you can graduate to putting in three match heads and having them float at different intervals in the bottle (i.e top, middle, bottom).

We just peeled off the label here, so you can, uh, see… and there’s two match heads… so, wooden match heads. Ok, just tear off the match heads and put them inside.

So, to do this, you need to completely cover the top, ok, with your thumb, and you need to push the air into the bottle. Ok? There goes one. Come back up. Go, other match! Ok, one. Ok? Did I say two needed to go down? Did I say that? I don’t know, did we mention two? Why did I put two in there? Why didn’t I just go with one? Why did I get over-zealous, you know? Ok, make the one match head sink to the bottom. Right? You know? Just make that one go down. There you go! You know? Why do you need to put two in there, you don’t have to be “big time”, ok big shot? Just make do it! There you go! Ok? Pretty cool nonetheless though, yeah? Good bar trick tutorial. Cheers!

How to Open a Beer Bottle with a Lighter

Beer Bottle Opening Tricks – How to Open a Beer Bottle with a Lighter Bar Trick Tutorial

How to Open a Beer Bottle with a Lighter [transcript]
You want to… you want to create a fulcrum so that you catch it and pop it off. So just catch it there.  And it’s one quick fluid motion now, catching under the lid.

Being able to pop off the bottle cap with a lighter just takes some practice.  You may find that it hurts your hand but if you create the right angle on the fulcrum, this shouldn’t be the case.

Once you get old enough to drink, it’s almost a required skill to be able to open a beer bottle with a lighter – or any other object.

You can even open a beer bottle with a plain ol’ piece of paper – no kidding!
