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
* A small candle or tea light
* A one-quarter full glass of wine
* A cherry (optional)
Step 1: Light the candle
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
Pour the wine into the dish.
Red wine is best so everyone can clearly see the wine going into the glass.
Step 3: Position the wine glass
Place the wine glass upside down directly over the candle.
Step 4: Watch in amazement
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
Flip over the glass holding the dish on top, remove the dish, and the wine is now fully in the glass. Bottoms up!
Fact: Treading grapes by foot is still the technique used to produce a small quantity of high-quality port wines.
