Get everyone pumped in the pub tonight with this cunning sleight of hand.

We grabbed telly magician Pete Firman to teach you a trick that’s guaranteed to prove all the naysayers wrong this weekend...


“Line up two full shot glasses: one of whisky, one of water. Bet your mate a fiver that he can’t get the two to switch places without using an extra glass, his mouth or a straw. Once they've put up the money, get set to knock their nuts off.”



“Whip out a playing card, a business card or your driving licence. Place it over the top of the shot glass with the water in it and flip both upside down. Now, gently place it on top of the whisky, lining both glasses up damn precisely.”

“Really, really carefully pull the card so that there’s a tiny gap between the glasses, enough for the two liquids to switch places. And look! The two liquids have switched places! Neck the shot, wipe your mouth with the back of your hand and walk off with your winnings!”

Just like this...
