Originally purposed as a panacea, this drink has become a digestive in some countries and a hip drink for in bars and clubs in other countries. Stored best in an ice cold fridge, it is quite easy to photograph it with frosted glass, but you have to work lighting fast. To prepare, I made about 100 ice cubes, cleaned a glass plate and used a hero-bottle to test the lighting. Finally only the first 20-30 shots were useable because of the quick melting of the ice and the defrosting of the bottle. The Dutch slogan "Alleen als ie ijs- en ijskoud is" (Only if it's ice- and ice cold) fits the theme just perfectly. Strobist info

  • This was my first idea, glad I went with another in the end. Nicely executed, I must say.
