A Cool Gift: Alcohol Art

A research scientist at Florida State University tried to find novel ways to fund his research, and decided to take photographs of various alcoholic drinks under the microscope and sell them as art.

Here's how this unique art is made according to the website:
"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 magnificent colors we see in our favorite drinks featured on this site."

Rum and Cola is my favorite, and I received it for Christmas.  I think it's a cool and unique gift!  You can buy them at:
