Spherification is a new technique taken from modern cuisine that chef Ferran Adrià used and that consists in creating a jelly layer around liquids to try and simulate fish eggs. This jelly encapsulation creates amazing taste in food and allows you to taste the flavour in your mouth all of a sudden and more intensely. In this experiment we've made a ball out of a soft drink such as coca cola and explains how to create it step by step. Bear in mind that the cola needs to be stirred in order to create the ball, so the gas will disappear when you put it in your mouth.
