Are there any foods/drink that I can "hide" liquid threadworm medicine in?

Sorry, she is 9. Behavioural issues.

Will she take the tablets instead?
My dd often refuses medicine or when she has it is so she throws up.
In the case of medicine needs must I think so I use bribery.
I will use chocolate - literally holding it in one hand and the medicine in another.
At 9 maybe a toy of some kind?
A thick milkshake like the macdonalds banana might work to hide it -it is banana flavour isn't it?
With the worms I found all the washing a real bind!

Gah! Washing is the bane of my life at the moment!

Milkshake is a fantastic idea, she loves them.

Will try that one. I can't use bribery, if she knows its medicine she will refuse......
