#833 Pouring a drink where the bubbles go right to the top but not over

Good start

Pouring a cold soda or pitcher of beer into a glass sure can be a stressful job.

Yes, all eyes are watching as you attempt a Hot Spotlight Pour late at night, surrounded by thirsty people, empty glasses, and focused, judging eyes.

She's gonna blow

You could get sloppy and cause a Bubbly Volcano to erupt, staring in horror as the drink owner tries to quickly suck up all the carbonated lava spilling over the edge of the glass. Most likely, you’ll end up with a sticky hands, a wet table, and some nasty stinkeye.


Or you could have the opposite problem and pour a Coke No Show. That’s when you cut your pour off early because you’re afraid of the Volcano. It’s understandable, but when the Coke fizz or beer head settles down and leaves only half a glass, well — that’s just embarrassing.

No, the perfect situation is when you pour a drink where the bubbles go right to the top but don’t spill over. It’s an exhilarating rush to see those bubbles just fizz up and up and up and up to the top, and then a massive wave of relief when they calm right back down just in the nick of time.

  1. Pouring the drink along the side of the glass (inside, not outside) should do the trick. Oh and btw, this is marked as #933, not #833

  2. I love it when the bubbles go right to the top and then you top it up as it they die down. Awesome and efficient.

  3. i love when u pour a soda and then stick your pinky in the middle to make the fizzing go down. or it over flows and u rush to slurp it up before it can over flow. :)

  4. …add eye of newt, wart of toad, leg of spider and see what bubbles up!
    teeheeheeteeheeheetehehehe! Snort!

  5. I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  6. I and my friends were digesting the nice points located on the website and then the sudden got an awful suspicion I had not thanked the web site owner for those tips. These guys came absolutely stimulated to read them and now have very much been having fun with those things. I appreciate you for truly being considerably helpful as well as for settling on some nice areas millions of individuals are really wanting to be aware of. My very own sincere apologies for not saying thanks to you earlier.
