||To me, a Bar
Amusement can be anything that brings a smile to someone's face. It
can be a joke or a riddle, even a puzzle or a magic trick. Bar
Tricks can be performed with on-hand items found around any bar;
bottles, glasses, money, people, matches, cigars, napkins, pool
tables, etc. Not only are they for Bartenders & Servers, they
can also be used to break the ice, astound your friends, liven a
party, or even to entertain children. After all, kids and drinking
adults are just about the same!
This is not really a bar
trick, This is Computer Magic!
a card below and remember it!
you ready....have it memorized yet...OK click the cards!
CHERRY & SNIFTER TRICK!
This is usually the first Trick
that a new Bartender learns. It's very simple, and all bars should
have the items to do it. You'll need a brandy snifter, a stem less
cherry (rinsed and dried), and an ashtray . Place the snifter
upside-down over the cherry. Challenge a bar guest to get the cherry into
the ashtray without touching the ashtray or the cherry. The only thing they
can touch is the snifter, and the only thing the cherry can touch is the
snifter. The snifter must remain inverted at all times. (Mashing the
cherry on the rim is not permitted.) Note: You can use a olive instead
of the cherry, and to add more Difficulty to the Trick you can use a
glass of any kind instead of an ashtray, and or use obstacles that the
Cherry has to go over. It's fun and easy give it a try.
how its done:
Simple take the snifter glass place over the cherry and begin
spining it. The sentrifical force will keep the cherry in the glass.
AND BEER BOTTLE TRICK!
Here's another easy Trick to
perform . Turn an empty bottle
(preferably longneck beer bottle) upside down on top of any bill. The challenge is
to get the bill out from underneath the bottle without knocking over the
bottle. You cannot touch the bottle, and it must remain inverted at all
how its done:
up the bill until it pushes off the
Hint: The first thing people will think of is to pull the bill quickly
out from underneath the bottle. This will work on slick surfaces, unless
you make sure the bill gets a little wet where it meets the bottle. The
last few drops of beer left in the bottle will prevent this from
happening. Give it a try, it's very easy.
Here's a easy
Psychic Trick to perform. Take three dice give them to
somebody and have them drop the dice into a glass of water.
sure to see what numbers
that are showing on
top), tell the person that
you are psychic, lift the glass over your head with your eyes closed,
then set the glass back down. Tell the person to look at the Dice and
think about the number showing Then stick your fingers in the water to
get them wet, rub them on your forehead, and after a little concentration,
announce the total number on the bottom of the dice. Amazingly you will
be right every time.
how it's done: Dice have this seven
thing going on. All you have to do is add up the total of the numbers on
top of the dice and subtract that number from 21 to know what the bottom total is.
Works Great because nobody but you knows the 21 rule. Go blow
peoples minds with this one!
SAUCER AND GLASS TRICK!
Take a lighter, four match
sticks, a small saucer, a lemon wedge, and a rocks glass.
Put water in the saucer and tell your guest at the bar that you can put all the
water in the glass without touching the saucer, just using the items
how its done:
Stick the 4 matches into the sides of the lemon wedge, with the matches
pointing up. Put the lemon, peel down, on the saucer. Light
the matches and place the glass over the lemon. The lack of oxygen
will extinguish the flames and suck the water into the glass. This Trick
is cool to do, great effect
Challenge one of your bar guest. (
try to get someone who really thinks there Strong and Athletic ) To balance a full
pint of beer on the back of each hand!
how its done: Tell your Victim to rest his
hands on the table. When he places his hands face down onto the
table you carefully place a pint of beer on the back of each hand for him.
When you are sure the pints of beer are secure on the backs of his hands you
can tell him to start to balance the pints of beer. In almost every case
your victim will be hand cuffed to the table! Why because once those drinks are in place HE CAN'T MOVE!
This will get some good laughs! Try it!
Get an empty bottle of Stoly Vodka . Using hot water, warm the outside bottom of the bottle --
making sure not to get any water in it. Take a straw & insert a
toothpick into it about 1" down from the top (making it look like a giant
" t "). Now,
put the long end of the straw into the bottle. Ask a bar guest if they
can remove the straw without touching the bottle or the straw with any
part of the body, and without using an object to knock over the bottle
or pull out the straw.
how its done: Light a match, drop it in and stand clear. ( Make
sure not to have the straw facing anybody
) You'll be amazed! The effect should be: The straw shooting out
of the bottle about 20' in the air. PLEASE USE CAUTION with this trick.
You don't want to injure anybody!
This is a Great Trick to pull on a Martini Drinker. Prepare a
mixing cup will a sponge glued to the bottom of it. When someone
orders a Dry Martini pour the shot into the prepared mixing cup and
then stain into a Martini Glass. Result: Nothing comes out.
how its done: The sponge absorbers the shot. Talk about a
WATER: This is a Great Trick to pull on an a bar guest. All you
need is 5 to 7 bottle caps, a quarter, and a helper. Line up the
5 to 7 caps on the bar in a row and tell your quest to place the
quarter under one of the caps with out you looking so you don't now
where it is. Tell them that you can tell witch cap the quarter is
under by using a little tonic water. Grab a glass, put some
tonic water in it, then put your fingers in the water and rub your
fingers over the bottles caps one at a time.
how its done: Have your helper, either another bartender or a regular that's in the
all the time, watch where the quarter is placed. Have your helper give
you some type of signal when your fingers are over the top of the cap
with the quarter underneath. At that time you say that the tonic water
is starting to tingle and lift the cap. Like magic you have used the
tonic water to find the quarter. If done right this will blow people
MAGIC STRAWS: This is a Great Trick to pull on an a bar guest. All you
need is 5 different objects, and a helper. First place 5
different objects, (you could use fruit, bottle tops, matches, coin
money, etc it doesn't matter as long as the 5 objects are all
different) in front of a bar guest so the objects make an appearance
of a 5 on a dice :-: . Tell them to point to an object when you
are not looking, but to let other people see so they can verify it.
Then take 2 straws, hold one in each hand so that the
straws are parallel and hold them over the objects that you have set
on the bar. When you come to the Object that was picked, just
move the straws so that they touch. Then tell everyone that the Magic
Straws have chosen this to be the Object that was chosen! It works
every time and blows peoples minds.
Here is how it is done: Since the objects are placed in a certain order
( like a 5 on a dice :-: ) just have your helper place there drink on
there cocktail napkin in the position of the object that was picked . Example:
If the person picking the object picks the object in the middle your
helper puts his drink in the center of there napkin, if they pick an
idem on one of the edges your helper puts there drink on the corresponding
edge. Just look to see where your helper sets there glass so you
know what object was picked. If done right this will blow people
MAGIC PALM TRICK
Take a Snifter
glass and fill it with Sambuca. Ask a guest at the bar if they could
pick up the glass just using your palm of one hand ( no fingers ).
how its done: Take a match and light the
Sambuca on fire, then place the palm of your hand over the snifter.
The fire will use up all of the oxygen and create a large suction so
you can pick up the glass and wave it around in the air.
THE WATER IN THE
SHOT GLASS TRICK
You have 2 shot glasses one on the bottom and the other upside-down on
top of the other, (and they both have to be full of water) the object is
to get the water out of the top shot glass without disturbing the glass
AT ALL!! That means no touching, poking, or knocking it over!! WITH
how its done: So before you tell anyone how its done, you make them wait
a little while and drive them up the wall. first of all make sure the shot glasses are
off centered just a very little bit, then you take 2 of the small bar straws and blow in between the glasses without TOUCHING them, and that
will push the air through and empty the top shot glass without touching
or putting them out of place at all! Just be careful because sometimes
hard to break the seal of the glasses!
Take a Glass of
water and drop an egg into it. After the egg sinks to the bottom of
the glass ask a bar quest if they can make the egg float.
how its done: Just and salt to the water and stir. The water becomes
more dense and the egg floats.
RE-ARRANGE THE GLASS TRICK
Place 5 shot
glasses down in the following order from left to right - empty glass
upturned, full glass, full glass, full glass, empty glass upturned.
Now ask a Bar guest to re-arrange
just one glass in one move to make a pattern where the glasses either
go full, empty, full, empty, etc OR empty, full, empty, full, etc!
how its done:
Simply pick up the
middle glass and down it. Then place it back in the center
This works because people try to get it
so that the 3 full glasses are in the middle and at the 2 ends - This
WONT work! The only way to do it is to drink the middle glass!
TO MAKE A MATCH ALWAYS LAND ON ITS SIDE
Take a match from a book of cardboard
matches. Print H (heads) on one side and T (tails) on the other. Tell a
bar guest that you will toss the match in the air and if it lands either heads or
tails you will buy him a drink. However, should it land on its side, he must
leave you a big tip.
how its done: Just before you toss the match
in the air, bend it. It will always land on it's side and you will always get a
A SHOT FROM AN UNOPENED BOTTLE
Tell a bar guest
that you can drink a shot from an unopened bottle of B & B!
how its done: Simply
turn your bottle of B & B upside down and pour a shot into the
bottom of the bottle, and drink it. You have fulfilled your end of the
bargain - you have taken a shot directly from the unopened bottle.
Take 2 small shot glasses and fill one
1/2 way with Kahlua and the other 1/2 way with milk. Ask a guest to put the contents of one
glass into the other and vice versa without pouring any out ( or putting one in
their mouth), they may however use their drivers license.
how its done:
Place the license over the top
of the Kahlua and turn upside down and on the milk without spilling and then
remove slightly to allow the milk to gradually fill the Kahlua glass. The
Kahlua is heavier and will sink to the bottom allowing you to carefully pour the
milk into the other glass.
AS I DO
Take two shot glasses and and six or eight sip
straws (an even #). Give one shot glass and half of the straws to the guest. Tell them if they can do everything you do, you'll buy them the shot, if not, then they must double your tip. Arrange your straws any way you'd like and pour two shots of their choice. One for you and one for them of course.
Start arranging the straws however you would like with your guest following suite. At some point, take
your shot but leave the liquor in your mouth. Your guest will take the shot. Then arrange the straws again just for good
how its done: when your ready, spit the shot back into the glass. Never have I seen someone not drink the shot. Your tip is doubled.
Place two BIG sherry glasses near each
other and put an egg in the one nearest to the customer. Tell the customer to move
the egg from one to the other without touching the egg or the glasses.
how its done:
into the glass with the egg and it will "flip" into the other glass...
Honest! (Practice to estimate the correct distance with a hard boiled egg
BEER CHUG TRICK
is for people who like funneling beers.
Let a friend drink half of his/her beer,
then bet him/her that you can chug your FULL beer before he/she can finish hers.
how its done:
Take a bendy straw and place it
into the bottle with the bent part out of the bottle. The other 2/3rds of the
straw should be in the bottle. Chug beer. Air escapes through the straw allowing
very quick consumption
are a great way to entertain your guests at the bar.
