Variants

Use a bottle of vinegar of the same size with a screw cap. You will be able to cover the felt cap and get an airtight thermos.



Cover glasses with felt of the same color as that used for the bottle and use identical wire to create a service for cold or hot drinks. By embroidering the figures at different heights, you can vary the temperatures indicated and thus obtain a fun graphic game.
