Flavor tripping: miracle berries review

I just came down from flavor tripping and boy is my palate tired. Also, I’m a bit drunk. I wasn’t trying to get a bit drunk, but that’s what happens when you hit the Miracle Fruit. The stuff basically rewires your tongue, erasing your ability to taste sour and bitter flavors for a short period of time. The upshot of the whole thing is that a lemon tastes like candy fruit and balsamic vinegar tastes like a high fructose fruit drink.

But what about booze? Well, let’s start with Trillium Absinthe. This stuff can be quite bitter if you don’t hit it with ice water and a smidge of sugar, but under the influence of Miracle Fruit, it’s all anise, all the time. It’s kinda like choking on the strongest black liquorish rope you’ve ever put in your mouth. But strangely, if you add a bit of rice vinegar, the whole thing mellows and turns into this almost nutty tasting, light anisette liquor with a touch of salt. Yes, I added rice vinegar to absinthe, which is not half as adventurous as some of the crap I’ve mixed at home at 4am after a vicious bender.

  1. Oddly enough, the first person to bring Miracle Berries to the U.S. was my wife’s grandfather, David Fairchild. It is only through the meddling of the FDA that this fruit hasn’t been used to make healthful sweeteners for many decades.

  2. Thanks for the love!
