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

Tools

• 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!

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.
