Champagne tower

Champagner-Pyramide A popular gag at parties that requires at least ten glasses. The Coupe is excellently suited for this. Champagne purists claim that this is the only sensible use of this glass shape. For these ten glasses, you need two normal bottles of champagne( sparkling wine) or a magnum. On a flat surface, six glasses are arranged in a circle, with the rims of the glasses touching.

Then three more glasses are placed in a triangular shape as a second level. The last glass is positioned exactly on the centre of the triangle. Now the top glass is slowly and steadily filled over until the six glasses on the lowest level are also filled. It is advisable to practise the procedure with water beforehand.
