The Dirty Martini magnified up to a 1,000 times.

Crystallization of beverages can be a tedious process as the alcohol is placed in an airtight container to completely dry on a glass slide. The average time span for the complete process ranges from 672 hours (four weeks) to three months. Once the crystallization procedure is completed, the slide with the alcohol is placed under a microscope which reveals a beautiful artwork owing to the molecular structure of the beverage.
