Learn How To Do A Party Trick With Wine

How To Do The Wine Into an Upside-down Glass Party Trick (courtesy of Howcast.com)

Bet your friends that you can make wine magically go into an upside-down glass, and the next round will be on them! You will need:

A dish or shallow bowl
Small candle or tea light
¼ full glass of wine


A cherry

Step 1 – Light the candle and drip wax into the center of the dish. Place the candle on the wax so that it sticks. You can get a cherry from the bartender and light the stem, instead of using a candle.

Step 2 – Pour the wine into the dish. Red wine is best, so everyone can clearly see the wine going into the glass.

Step 3 – Place the wine glass upside-down directly over the candle.

Step 4 – Watch in amazement as the wine is drawn into the glass as the candle goes out, creating a vacuum.

Step 5 – Flip over the glass, holding the dish on top. Remove the dish, and the wine is now fully in the glass! Bottoms Up!

Did you know? Treading grapes by foot is still the technique used to produce a small quantity of high quality port wines!
