I got the idea for trying this while watching a friend’s gin-and-tonic delightfully bubble away at dinner. Not much explanation to go with these photos. Took a flower, put it in a large wine glass and covered it with tonic water. Toughest part was keeping the flower from floating up!

The easiest way to get the flower to stay put was to clamp the end of the stem and then bend it near the flower head.

A closer shot - bubbles makes fascinating patterns in this profile view of the flower.

First in profile, now a top-down photo capturing the face of the flower along with the attractive colors being reflected in the wine glass.
