Stunning Images Capture Alcohol Under A Microscope

It’s not just to drink any more.

Instead of getting wasted, a company called Bevshots is using alcohol to do something amazing: They’re crystalizing your favourite beer, wine, cocktails, and liquor and putting tghe results under a microscope. Booze never looked so beautiful.

The drinks were crystallized on a slide and photographed under a polarised light microscope. The light refracts through the drink’s crystals and the results speak for themselves.

Tequila looks almost like glass. The artist says this is a good example of the fact that they are shooting microscopic photos of crystals because you can see the individual formations.

PiƱa Colada looks extremely exotic. The artist says many customers liken this image to peacock feathers.
