It also works with small flashlights, just not as well. I haven't tried it with different liquids, flavors, size of the bottles, or different lights; so please experiment with these variables and let me know the results.

Just a thought - Try illuminating it with an ultra-violet LED.  One of those little keyring bank-note testers would do.

I'll try that. Thanks for the idea.
