I'm creating a scene involving a spilled Nuka-Cola bottle. Here's how it looks:

The puddle on the ground looks too.. smooth. I would like it too look a little bit more noisy and realistic. Changing color settings or roughness or IOR didn't help.

From your Blender file, i've done the following node setup, if you do the same, just change a bit your camera position or lightsource position, so the fluid can have something to reflect:NukaCola

On node editor, you can try the following: add glass shader --> add glossy shader--> add mix shader--> add layer weight--> connect glass and glossy to "shader" in mix shader node--> connect layer weight node's "facing" or "fresnel" to "fac" in mix shader--> connect mix shader to material output. Instead of using glass shader, you can also consider using transparent shader

    $\begingroup$ as your IOR might be too high, you might consider to use some more realistic values, like on the following post: forums.cgsociety.org/archive/index.php?t-513458.html $\endgroup$
