A couple of weeks ago, we gave you the molecular formula for making a strawberry: furaneol (cotton candy), y-Decalactone (creamy peach), methyl cinnamate (fruity guava), and ethyl butyrate (fruity).

During that same session, Marie Wright, chief global flavorist for Wild Flavors also provided us the recipe for cola.

Here are the basic components for a standard cola flavor: citrus blend, spice blend (more specifically, nutmeg), and vanilla.

But if that wasn't enough for you, we managed to unearth the supposed "original Coca-Cola" recipe from the Web.

You're welcome.
