Drink Magic by Michael P. Lair

Featuring the International Brotherhood of Magicians' originality contest 2009 1st place award-winning entry 'Shrink Drink' plus nine other cool ideas with drinks to add to your magic act.

Ten visual magic effects with cans, bottles, and cups of drinks. All tricks and their complete construction and performance tips are fully explained. Three is something for everyone and several of the effects are so visual that you will enjoy fooling yourself in front of the mirror.

Shrink Drink: The winner of the 2009 IBM originality contest. A 12-oz. can of soda visually shrinks down to half its size. You can then open the drink and pour it out.

Shrink Drink 2.0: A subtle improvement that makes 'Shrink Drink' even more deceptive. Watch their faces when a 12-oz. can of soda shrinks down to an 8-oz. can.

Mini-Size Me: A medium size fast food cup full of liquid shrinks quite visually down to a small fast food cup. Don't super-size me ... mini-size me!

Mini-Size Me 2.0: A subtle improvement that makes 'Mini-Size Me' even more amazing. This is the perfect way to shrink a fast food cup when you are pretty well surrounded by your audience.

Super-Size Me: As you are drinking a small fast food drink, watch the shock on people's faces when the cup quite visually stretches, with no cover whatsoever, into a medium size fast food cup. Amazing!

Cup of Soda: While you are pouring a 12-oz. can of soda into a fast food cup, the shiny can of soda quite mysteriously disappears with no trace. This effect can be performed in short sleeves, too. The can that was just seen being poured into the cup, completely vanishes.

20/12: A 20-oz. bottle of soda magically shrinks down to a 12-oz. mini bottle of soda as you are pouring yourself a drink. As the soda lowers, so does the bottle.

20-oz. Production: A clear, tall drinking glass is shown with two 18" scarves. Suddenly, when the scarves and glass are given a shake, a 20-oz. bottle of soda appears. 20-oz. Production is a quick, fun lead-in to your favorite drinkmagic trick using any 20-oz. or 1-liter bottle of liquid. This is one of Michael's marketed magic effects that made Joshua Jay's Top 10 List for 2005 in Magic Magazine.

Redmagic: This is a perfect opener for a stage magician. A red rose turns into a red streamer. The red streamer is placed over a lit red candle. The red candle suddenly vanishes, and instantly a bottle of red liquid is there in the candle's place! This one looks excellent performed to music.

Big!: A long-stemmed clear glass and a sheer white 18" scarf are shown. Then, out of nowhere, a 2-liter bottle of soda is magically produced. Big! is so amazing. The 2-liter bottle just materializes out of nowhere in your hand, to the amazement of your audience.

Looks to have been produced in ~80s. As a result, several of the presented tricks use outdated formats for cans, which renders many of the suggested solutions highly difficult to pull off. "small sized" cans do not come in the same format today (2024). Also, the teaching is very short and very lacking, not much better than you would get from a pamphlet format, but this is presented in video. Some decent ideas here overall, but for me this was below average, when compared to the generally great value and teaching I find here at Lybrary.
