How to achieve real surface tension effect?

RealFlow is a simulator, not reality. It gets pretty close results in a lot of cases but how good is good enough varies and sometimes is out of reach. Not saying it isn't possible to create that surface tension lip on the edge of a glass. Just saying the solution is up to you to implement. For a still frame I'd resort to modeling it. For an animation clever use of daemons and/or Python can go a long way. For macro shots with animation it might be better to physically shoot it with a glass of liquid if the interaction has to be completely realistic.
