Use Whiskey, Water, and a Card in a Cool Trick

Watch water and whiskey trade places in this artsy video

If you're hosting a party and want to mildly entertain your guests, you can always grab a deck of old cards, some whiskey, and some water to try out this trick.

The premise: Fill up two glasses to the brim, one with water, one with whiskey. Cover the water glass with a card, flip it upside down and place on top of the whiskey glass. Watch as the amber whiskey floats up as the water seeps down (a simple magic trick explained here).

We may not try this out at home, though. The videographer warns that you should “be prepared to spill a lot of whiskey," and we’re not sure if we’re up for that. Watch below, but young eyes be wary; some of the card illustrations are rather naughty.
