Can You Guess These Microscopic Drinks?

William LeGoullon took on the role of photographer and bartender in his latest series, "Fingerprints of Drinkable Culture." Exploring his fascination with man-made beverages, he put the five most popular drinks (hint) under a microscope and photographed them. See if you can guess which is which below!

“Stemming from my work as both an artist and as a barista and bartender, my interest is in concocting a recipe of beverage culture, art, and science with regard to what we as humans consume. I am continually inspired by observing what has been left behind and the clues that inspire examination. In this series, I treat the world’s top five most consumed man-made beverages like scientific specimens, allowing each liquid sample to dry before photographing them using a microscope. The resulting images provide us with a chance to analyze these fingerprints of drinkable culture as an act of art consumption.”

Look closely; can you tell which drink is which? Try your luck and comment below! ;-)
