Imagine performing the classic effect, Sands of the Desert with colorful liquids! An original effect that is visual, easy to do and makes a big impact on your audiences.
Click on the video to see this perplexing, audience-pleasing routine.
You show an empty bucket, and three bottles with three different, colored liquids and three empty, transparent cups. Use sodas, juices, or energizer drinks—you choose! Anything bright and colorful.
You pour each liquid, one at a time, into the bucket -- perhaps blue, yellow and finally red.
Next, you swirl the bucket around, mixing all of the liquids into a magical cocktail. Then the magic happens as you take one of the empty plastic cups, dip it into the bucket—and when you lift it out, it’s filled with a blue drink! Take another cup and repeat this puzzling act of prestidigitation... as you extract a yellow drink. Finally, you tip the bucket so your audience can see inside it, as you pour the remaining red liquid, filling the third cup.
The Cocktail is based on a clever idea by Alan Wakeling and perfected by professional magician Gustavo Raley.
