Microscopic Images Of Alcoholic Drinks

All of these impressive photos of alcoholic beverages under a microscope uncover the elements that make up some of our preferred tipples. Similar to photos of snowflakes, each and every beverage is unique, while observed below when zoomed about 1,000 times under a high tech lab microscope.

What you can see in the magnified pictures are the crystalised carbohydrates that have become sugars and glucose. Each image was created by using a pipette of each particular drink and squeezing a drop onto a slide. Then the droplets are allowed to dry out and the slide is placed under the microscope and a picture taken.

It will take approximately 4 weeks for the alcohol to dry up entirely in the airtight container, and the complete procedure may take around 3 months.
