Well, as I've been preaching forever, the Encyclopedia of Impromptu Magic by Martin Gardner is an essential. Massive and great.

I did an oldie that had everyone watching.

I secretly placed a napkin over the sticky mouth of a glass and trimmed off the overhang.
A open napkin is on the bar. The glass mouth down on napkin.
Place a coin next to the glass, cover the glass with another napkin, cover the coin w/ glass.
Make a magic gesture and remove the napkin cover.
Looking thru the glass, the coin appears to have vanished.
Re-cover the glass and lift it. The coin returns.

Not a great trick, and someone there eventually figured it out. It was fun though.

There are two nice little effects in "Richard's Almanac".
One is "Iced" and the other, I think, "Cocktail Time" by Vernon.

Michael Weber's Striking Glass (Collected Almanac, Page 92, is an impromptu version of the coin in bottle using a borrowed coin and a move of David Williamson's that takes a bit of practice...

Sponge Bunnies. Robert Nelson's (yes, the mentalist!) greatest trick, also known as "Peter Rabbit Goes To Town" and found in J.G. Thompson's "My Best" collection.

Dice Stacking. ANY good bill tear. Fl!p Stick. Ring On Wand. Salt Pour. Twisting the Aces. Benson Bowl Routine. 3 Coins Thru See Thru Hanky (Ammar).

Just a few more...

Impromptu cap in beer bottle -the one by daniel garcia.
impossible card in bottle. ocasionally coin in soda can combined with healed and sealed if you have time for setup (in this section...guess not Smile ).
torn and restored cigarette by Slydini is a very nice impromptu effect also

Next time you lookl at your scotch and soda set, don't just think of the regular routine, there are all sorts of routines you can do with it. Try putting the mexican coin through an ashtray.

I agree with Lee on the Encyclopedia of Impromptu Magic by Martin Gardner. Lots of stuff in there to keep you busy and your bar fellows astounded.
Also check out the video Icebreakers by Amarr (sp) some neat simple effects that can be done with borrowed stuff in the bar.
