3 Flavor Tripping Thanksgiving Cocktails

The Thanksgiving season is a time to gather with friends and family to celebrate. Instead of having a hum-drum party, intrigue and surprise your guests by introducing them to flavor-tripping!

Flavor-tripping is the phenomena of using miracle berries to change the tastes of sour and acidic flavors so they taste sweet, without the use of sugar. Berries, citrus fruits, apples, cranberries, yogurt, sour cream, vinegar, and other sour foods – all taste super sweet after you consume a MiraBurst Miracle Berry Tablet.

This flavor transformation is made possible by Miraculin, a glycoprotein found only in miracle berries that is one of the few taste transformers existing in nature. Simply offer your guests a MiraBurst tablet and tell them to let the tablet melt on their tongues, like a hard candy. Once their tongues are completely coated, any sour and acidic foods they eat or drink for up to 90 minutes will taste sweet.

We’ve included below three fun, seasonal cocktails that will greatly demonstrate the powerful taste transformation of the miracle berry that you can serve at your flavor-tripping Thanksgiving party. Each cocktail is classically made using sugar or sweetened ingredients, which we have omitted here. Your guest will be amazed how delicious these drinks are, without adding calorie-laden sugar.
