Cocktail Colors Seen Through the Microscope

Cocktail Colors Seen Through the Microscope


Photographs of cocktails through the microscope... Mixing up our perspective on our favorite cocktails, the photomicrography work of Michael Davidson shows different types of liquor and mixed drinks magnified over 1,000 times. His work has found a place in the "bar art" world selling prints through the company BevShots, and thanks to @spigumus and this Daily Mail article we find some interesting color compositions.

BevShot images are made by first crystallizing the drink of choice on a lab slide. Using a standard light microscope with a camera attached, the light source is polarized and passed through the crystal. This creates the colors we see featured.

I agree, I like the Vodka image, but Tequila seems somehow descriptive of itself. And the Belgiam Lambic is wild. Who would have thought this was going into our system each time we made a toast. Interesting post Dave, thanks.

Anyone for a White Russian?

سالها ان كانت تعرف ماكانت تفعله امواج البحربين صخور كالصوان قالت ان البحر ياتي ويذهب فقط اختر المكان قال شكلنا بيوتا قالت فعل الله الاكثر صنع البحر صنع الارض صنع الناس سالته مما تصنع بيتا ....سكت فقالت مما خلق الله جعل فينا الروح وجعلنا الناس التى تاخد الروح تاخدها موتا تاخدها حبا تاخدها وتعيش عليها علها تجد الله في باقي الناس ...ضحك بصوت مسموع حتى التفت كل الناس من الجوار قالت هل عرف الناس في المقهى المجاور ا ننا هنا نظر اليها وهو يقول ليتا التقبنا قبل ان اموت لكنا الان معا قالت عد الى الحياة في اى انسان تراه وخدني
