Amazing Photographs Of Alcoholic Drinks Under The Microscope

BevShots. Sake.

I’m sure that when most of you are sipping on your favorite cocktail- be it a piña colada or a cosmopolitan- the first thing that comes to mind is not “I wonder what this would look like under a microscope…” But just in case you did, an awesome company called BevShots has combined art, booze and science to give you a magnificent array of colorful microscope photographs of your favorite tipple.

How do they do it? They first crystallize the beverage on a microscope slide, and then take pictures using a polarized light microscope with a camera attached. As the light passes through the crystals, some amazing colors and patterns show up. The result is pretty mesmerizing. Check out a few of our favorites:
