The description is here. http://www.colinrosemimc.co.uk/magic_sho......onic.htm

I think the method is fairly obvious to any magician.

It's not too difficult to add a "chop gimmick" to this set. I have a friend who did just that and it's quite a combination!

I have performed this a handful of times for friends in my home bar. As Bill pointed out the method is fairly obvious to magicians. Upon receiving it I found it to be designed just as I had imagined it would be.
That said, everytime I've performed it for guests I've gotten good solid reactions expressing their enjoyment and astonishment. I like this effect, it is certainly well made, and plays well in a bar environment.
Because of the nature of the kickers involved in the prediction you are limited to the Gin, Tonic, and Lemon ending. I wish they had included a second or third set-up like a rum coke lemon or vodka tomato juice lime. Or sold them as an extra. Obviously this would allow for repeat performances through out the night without the force being exposed.

If you have a computer printer and a lamination machine (which are not very expensive) you can do exactly what you need to do very quickly.

I should have thought of giving that a try. Thanks Bill.

Now this novel apparatus is coming already "chopped". The newer Fruit & Nuts seems more practical with more going on... In any case, his company's woodcrafting is beautiful.

Just an idea for anyone who has this effect. I wasn't really happy with the drink cards that came with the trick. So I worked on a force out of a cocktail recipe book.
Later I found and bought a deck of specialty playing cards with drink recipes on each card. And it contains a card for a Gin and Tonic. They are called Cocktail Cards playing cards by Inkstone Design, INC. of Missoula, Montana. I think the deck improves the look of the trick and certainly looks normal as opposed to the provided cards with the names of various liquor printed on them.

If you check out my web site, you'll see the force deck that I created for this. I always get a great reaction from this effect. Especially at "happy hour".

Excellent choice, Mitch. They look great. I love it when someone adds their "own touch".
