Egg in liquid

Put potassium hydroxide inside the glass and then add alcohol in. After that, add fresh egg which will submerge in the alcohol but swim on potassium hydroxide. It will look like it is levitating in the middle of liquid. Egg is heavier than alcohol, so it will submerge. But it is lighter than the liquid.
