Microscope Shot Glasses

These shot glasses will add a splash of weird science to your next drink. A group of sober-minded scientists crystalized their favorite alcoholic drinks, and then photographed them under a polarized microscope. The resulting psychedelic swirl of colors have been applied to the bottom of these tall shots, where the color seems to warp and shift as it is refracted through the glass. Comes in a set of sharp green vodka, fiery red whisky, deep blue tequila and hazy yellow rum. Made in China.

Mixing the perfect drink can be a science, so sometimes it's ok to just take a straight shot. These colorful glasses let you see what that spirit is made of, and appreciate the beauty of good booze. Would you raise one of these glasses in a toast to chemistry at your next party?

I love the colors and the style! I wish they were made in the US though. I have seen several things like this before so that is a slight turn off. Very pretty bottoms though.

I agree, we need to build the USA economy, not some other country.
