Skim the Internet and you will come across posters of your favorite cocktails, liquor brands, alcohol vernacular, and more. But look a little closer—some things are not as they appear, and these things are BevShots.

The small company mixes art and science by snapping microscopic photographs of booze to create beautifully intricate patterned pictures. Originally in 1992, scientist Michael Davidson turned to this process as a way to fund his Florida State University research lab. Utilizing his prior knowledge of imaging DNA, biochemicals and vitamins, Davidson was able to collect such photos and use them as designs for retail neckties from 1995-2002. After this cocktail collection took off, BevShots emerged.

By crystalizing alcohol or mixed drinks on a microscope slide and then passing polarized light through the crystals, Davidson created some strikingly unique images that you can now purchase on more than just a necktie. Pick your favorite cocktail, wine, beer or liquor and then choose your medium. From gender related products—a beach sarong for the ladies or a silk pocket square for the men—to barware (coasters, shot glasses, & flasks) and framed art, there’s something for everyone.

So whether you’re searching for a gift or new house décor, choose your preferred cocktail and visit the BevShots website—just remember to shop responsibly.
