Right. What's Aperol?

Dude.

A polarized-light photomicrograph reveals a crystallized drop of Aperol, a brand of bitter liquor that lends its orange color to the popular Italian aperitif spritz. “I had never taken photomicrographs of drinks ... because there's somebody—Michael Davidson—who does this job at an unbeatable level,” writes Your Shot member Bernardo Cesare. After showcasing Davidson’s work alongside his own rock photomicrographs at a conference, Cesare received a suggestion: Try Aperol. “I did it, and the result is what you see here.”

Close up alcohol is beautiful! A shot of a shot!
