I have come up with a totally different method to the trick. It does not require any chemicals or formulas. I might sell you the concept if interested. I have slid it across the table to some of the big dogs out there. Still yet to see it.

Mind PM me on this?

Here is the finished milk carton I developed for the trick with the assistance of a local dairy

Very cool! How many did you have to buy to get them to do that?

I really like this illusion. My ethical problem is that my wife and partner is also a real practicing physician. Passing out the (second batch) magic drinks for sampling is no problem because they are real. My concern is someone drinking one of the "look-a-like" drinks (off stage, by accident, etc.). Does anyone have any very harmless formulas for the fake drinks? Some of mine are not for human consumption.

There is no second batch of drinks in that video (nor was the audience poisoned) but they all confirmed that the drinks were real.
Was the switch cut from the final video?

The book about Alan Wakeling gives some very smart answers (also from Jim Steinmeyer)

Wow, this is an old thread. Just my 2 cents, but I have all of the books that this is published in (Steinmeyer, Wakeling, Atkins) but the real trick is coming up with the correct formula! If anyone can give me something that will work without 20 or more hours of experimentation, I would love to do this on stage. Unfortunately, I could not find the perfect formula after hours/days/months of experimentation The trick itself is simple and Steinmeyer explains it nicely in the Modern Art manuscript, but I have tried so many different p....s, and d....s without real success, that I have given up. even David Charvet's kind offering did no work for me. Any real help, would be greatly appreciated. It is a mind blowing effect if it is presented correctly and the audience believes the drinks being poured into the glasses are in fact real!

Ever since this post 11 years ago, I have been getting PM's asking for the recipes. I stopped sending them a long time ago because I began to question whether or not the people requesting had actually purchased the illusion/book/rights to perform the trick. So I hope you don't take offense, but I will not be sharing the drink recipes I use for Hospitality. My advice is to experiment. With a little creative thinking and a lot of experimenting, you'll find drinks that look great!

Hey Michael (or anyone else), If I can prove I just bought this effect, can I get some of the recipes? I can send pictures of myself with the illusion lol.

Alan Bursky published an eBook "Think A Drink" that covers the history of this trick, and many of the containers sold my magic dealers of the time. Some formulas are given from the copied instructions that came with the tricks sold. He sells the eBook by email. Cost $29. You might find something helpful in this book. email him at thinkadrink@aol.com .

I love performing this. You don't force anyone to take a drink, you ask "Who would like an orange juice?" "Who would like a 7=Up?"

The only recipe I would have a problem with people drinking is the fake milk.

The problem that I have with this illusion is that, virtually *any* drink nowadays come in a powdered form....even beer!

You no longer have to switch out the drinks and how the drinks were created is blatantly obvious to a layman.

Mike, You may be right. But on the other hand, the most important thing is to make people believe that You pour different drinks directly out of the milk box. Forget about w***r inside milk box - althoug the w***r is necessary to 'create' everything instant (like soup), audience have to think that there is a milk inside carton box. Only magician knows about w***r.

In my opinion this trick is not about having real drinks - it's rather about pouring different drinks out of one, filled with milk box (it's emptiness can be proven in the end - no secret panels or compartments).
