If you have often wondered what exactly lies within the various concoctions that make our favourite alcoholic drinks, then here is your answer.

These incredible pictures show popular cocktails magnified up to 1,000 times under a high-tech laboratory microscope.

Produced by U.S. firm Bevshots, they reveal the incredible molecules and kaleidoscopic colours created by the different combinations.

Capturing the constituent parts of favourite drinks such as vodka,  pina colada and Chablis, the pictures were taken in Florida State University’s chemistry department.

‘What you can see in the magnified pictures are the crystalised carbohydrates that have become sugars and glucose,’ explained Bevshots founder Lester Hutt.
