    his one's fun, easy, and best of all, can be done in your own kitchen (plus, you'll actually "fool" yourself). I'm not really sure how to use it to score a drink at the bar, but damn does it look cool.


    The Setup:


    Put a few unopened bottles of beer in your freezer for a couple of hours (side note: the visual effect will work best with clear beer bottles, like Corona). When it comes time to remove the beers, you may notice a couple of them have frozen and "exploded," but there should also be a few that are still in a liquid state. Carefully pick these up, set them on the table, and remove the bottle caps.


    The Effect:


    At this point, the trick does itself… just give the bottle a good tap on the side of the counter, and as the bubbles start to form, the entire beer will instantly freeze, eventually pushing the ever-expanding ice out the mouth of the bottle.


    Why does this work? In a word: supercooling. From Wikipedia:
