Good-looking or dark, it depends on your choice.

the acid-base discoloration of anthocyanin should be familiar to everyone. Recently, we have seen some ideas of using it to do discoloration cuisine. Today, let's share two

the cocktail in the picture above is the addition of some butterfly bean bubble water on the top, and on the right is the effect of adding Lemon Juice to the cocktail. You can see it turned into a beautiful pink purple.

the flowers of butterfly beans are very beautiful blue. People often use them to make discolored herbal tea drinks, which turn pink and purple when acid is added.
