Got unexpected guests at your laboratory?
You want to feast them but the pantry is empty?
Be generous and take one of your wet specimen glasses out of the shelf and pop it open to cheer up your folks and get them tipsy at your cozy laboratory...
Follow me step by step to the preservation lab to show you the genesis of this drink. Don't be scared - all parts of this drink are food save and eat/drinkable. You can make a alcoholic mixture as well as a non-alcoholic concoction.
Wikipedia defines: "A zoological specimen is an animal or part of an animal preserved for scientific use. Various uses are : to verify the identity of a (species), to allow study, increase public knowledge of zoology."
I would like to add: "A homemade wet specimen is beneficial to contribute a decorative drink for your halloween party"
