The Secret Coca Cola Recipe

The NYT reports today that Ira Glass on “This American Life” found the secret Coca Cola recipe in an old copy of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Here it is:


Fluid extract of coca

Citric acid




Lime juice




Orange oil

Lemon oil

Nutmeg oil

Coriander oil

Neroli oil

Cinnamon oil

I think this is very exciting news and look forward to making a big batch of Coca Cola at home.  Just as soon as I figure out the proportions.
