Bartending tutorials: Bottle Cap Bar Trick
This bottle cap bar trick is sure to have your opponent pulling at their hair. It seems so easy and they’ll want to try for hours, sure they’ll win on the next attempt and the next. I suggest setting a time limit or amount of blows before starting, as you might be there all night.
Bend the cap in half and sit it half in the neck or opening of the bottle. The bet is to blow the cap inside the bottle.
Because of the shape of the bottle and cap, the air will pass through the cap every time, bounce off the bottom of the bottle and push the cap outside.

Hi, Reese Richards here from BarsandBartending.com with another bar trick. So in this bar trick, you have an empty beer bottle and a beer cap that is crushed in half, sitting halfway into the mouth of the beer bottle. The bet is, you bet someone – a beer, a draft or 5 dollars whatever – that they can’t blow the beer bottle cap into the bottle. That’s it. They cannot blow the cap into the bottle. So it seems actually easy. So we’ll try xxx xxx. One more. Okay, the reason is once you blow into the bottle most of the air passes the beer bottle cap and it comes back from the bottle and blows it out. So you can’t actually blow it into the bottle. So after they try several times and fail then you can try for yourself. And what you want to do is take a straw and blow the air right into the bottle cap. There we go. This been a presentation from BarsandBartending.com. My name is Reese Richards with another simple bar trick.
