What happens when you ask a synthetic biologist to mix you up a cocktail? You learn how to isolate strawberry DNA. (The sticky stuff on the toothpick up there.)

Wanna know how to make a strawberry DNA cocktail yourself? We’ve got you covered.

In this animated how-to video, TED Fellow / synthetic biologist Oliver Medvedik shows you how to use pineapple juice and Bacardi 151 to isolate strawberry DNA for a very nerdy adult beverage. Watch the whole thing here»

A biology lesson and a cocktail recipe in one? You’re welcome. Drink responsibly and read more about the video here.

    This is basically what I do in the lab, except no cocktails afterwards. Also much smellier ingredients. Mmm...
