Red didn’t show up as well. Used food colouring in water to get the colour.
Discussed this pic with my good friend and fellow Bubbler Shawn and we felt that given the colour of the liquid, I should also shoot this using a whisky glass (the glass is wrong for the ‘liquor’) with ice in it and a nice golden glow as the back ground. – so will be doing that over the weekend (or during the week if I manage to get home in time to try it).
EDIT: If the liquid is seen as Iced Tea, then it all works out well – so it’s iced tea with a splash of vodka.
