Inventor creates floating cocktail

A young British inventor inspired by Willy Wonka has created the world’s first floating cocktail using a machine he’s dubbed the “Levitron”.

Modern day Willy Wonka: Charlie Harry Francis

The brainchild of 30-year-old Charlie Harry Francis and ultrasonic expert professor Bruce Drinkwater of Bristol University, the “Levitron” uses ultrasonic sound waves to float drops of alcohol that can be licked out of the air.

The first cocktail to grace the air was a 70% proof levitating G&T, and Francis has recently created a floating Bloody Mary.

As the technology only allows for tiny droplets to float, he has made the cocktails highly potent to give drinkers the alcoholic kick of a full-sized version.

Francis’ company, Lick Me I’m Delicious, has also invented Viagra ice cream in the pills’ signature baby blue colour, glow-in-the-dark ice cream and edible mist.

His next trick is to work out a way to float food, with levitating popcorn the first to be trialed. He is also developing edible aftershave and a jellybean waterfall.
