I was going to ask this as part of another thread here, but I didn't want hijack it.
Does anyone use a glass of liquid as a final load for the Cups & Balls? How would you do it?

here is 2 older threads dealing with the subject and also if you post under the secret sessions maybe people would be more likely to talk about the logistics or handling.

That would be a really cool final load!!! and SO surprising that it would make enough misdirection to keep producing more items....

Several methods are out there for that.
It is a great closer.

I think you should experiment with what you are doing and come up with the method that works best with you.

Andy Galloway wrote that his teacher, John Ramsay did that. The realities of practical performing in context make the basic premise awkward.

If you're working on a one-shot no reset parlor type act...classic methods and modern materials (plastic sealed glasses) seem to work.

Jean Merlin in France had special cups made with double walls having a hole at the inner bottom, and a very small hole near the mouth (or on the bottom I don't remember exactly). The hole was blocked by a bit of wax. At the end, after the large loads, he would scratch off the wax and pour liquid from each of the three cups on to the floor... Very very impressive

The "Stabbed and Shot" gimmick, or similar, can be usefully employed here.
