Have you ever wondered what your libation looks like under a microscope? Well, wonder no more. BevShots is a company that sells beautiful magnified prints of your favorite alcoholic drinks. Here are two of our favorites.
The images are made by first crystallizing the drink of choice on a lab slide. A pipette of each particular drink is made and then a drop is squeezed onto a slide. The droplets are allowed to dry out – it can take up to four weeks for the alcohol to dry completely in an airtight container. Then the slide is placed under a microscope and a picture is taken using a standard light microscope with a camera attached. The light source is polarized and passed through the crystal, creating an array of magnificent colors. The entire process can take up to three months.
We can’t help but notice how the microscopic whiskey looks like a myriad of beautiful lips, each begging for a kiss – that’s how we’ve always pictured it, seems we were right all along.
