Oh please do that with success at night. I wasted over 500 shots with every setting. Pitch black surroundings. Doesn't work for me.

I would suggest try this to begin with:

1. Set your camera to flash burst mode
2. Focus on either the dripping point (tap for example) or the point of impact. Because these cameras aren't powerful enough to focus on midstream droplets.
3. Keep you camera as perpendicular to the stream as possible (i.e. try that the lens is perfectly in line with the drip). This ensures that the plane of focus remains almost the same for the tap and the droplets.
4.Snap away

Or if you prefer a little more res

1. Set to shutter priority (S).
2. Do the same trick with focus that i mentioned above.
3. And snap away

One thing that you'll have to keep in mind is that mostly the impact shots like the last one i uploaded, you have to be VERY lucky to capture that in S mode.
