Add a few drops of food colouring, wait for the colouring to break through the oil to the water

add about a quarter of an alka seltzer tablet to the bottle and watch… (make sure you leave the lid off as pressure will build up) add more tablets as and when desired or just pop the lid on and swish back and forth for a cool effect.
