Thanks so much for all the encouraging comments! I agree, it would be better if the bubbles showed up more. BTW champagne bubbles don't last long enough, so this is actually Sweet N Low going in. Maybe a syringe with air hidden behind the bottle would work better? Any more ideas?

spooky11, ekmai, and ja-9 you made my week!!! Thank you!
