Making things from scratch is always a fun way to spend the afternoon. There’s something special about being in the kitchen with an exciting new project. If you’re a huge cola fan, it’s worth making it yourself at least once.
Here are our two favorite cola recipes for you to try out. Whether or not they’re as good as our sparkling CBD soda...well, that’s for you to decide!
Are you a health freak? Even people who eat clean like soda! Here are the ingredients you’ll need for this natural cola recipe.
This natural cola has a fruity, tangy flavor while still staying rich thanks to the cinnamon sticks and browning sauce. You can adjust how much citrus you want to add based on your personal preferences.
For this secret recipe, let’s go over the ingredients in a little more detail.
Kola nut powder was a star original ingredient in many colas and naturally contains caffeine. You can still find kola nut powder in health food stores. It varies in strength so read the label. It adds a lifting flavor to the cola.
Brown sugar is also known as light brown sugar. It creates the beautiful caramel tone that cola is famous for. You can substitute for dark brown sugar if you want to. White sugar can be used too, but the cola won’t be as dark.
White sugar sweetens up your cola. You can adjust the amount of sugar based on how sweet you like your cola to be.
Citrus fruits add a bite to the cola with their zest and juices.
Cinnamon is a staple ingredient and the cola flavor wouldn’t be the same without it.
Ginger adds a nice zing. It’s best to use fresh ginger to get the full warmth, but ground ginger works too.
Nutmeg can be used fresh or ground.
Vanilla can be real, imitation essence, or a vanilla pod.
Citric acid adds extra acidity and the classic cola mouth feel.
The kola nut powder in this recipe really brings it to the next level and is definitely the star of the show. You won’t find it in most cola recipes- that’s why this one is a secret!
Making your own cola can be a fun adventure, especially if you like to make things from scratch. It can be rewarding to turn a pile of ingredients into something delicious!
