In this Instructable I am going to show you how to make a foam that will change your sensation of taste. Even though it is tasteless in itself it will make everything sour you eat taste really sweet. You can serve it as a cocktail garnish, so that the cocktail changes its taste while you drink it or for example as a dip with lemon and grapefruit slices.

Step 1: Stuff you need


• Mortar and pestle
• Scale
• Measuring cup
• Milk frother
• Glasses

Chemicals (for two servings)

• 1.8 g of methyl cellulose (you can get it in an apothecary or on amazon.com)
• 0.5 g of xanthan gum (as well in an apothecary or amazon.com)
• 1 miracle berry tablet (e.g. here: http://www.miracleberrypill.org/). I tried a different brand as well, but this one worked better.

If you are not interested in the Chemistry just skip the next step and go right to the recipe.
I forgot to ask in my last comment...How stable is the foam? Does it need to be refrigerated? How long will it keep? Thank you! <br>
Hi, thanks for the compliment, the foam is surprisingly stable, I left it in the kitchen for two hours and didn't notice any difference.
