🔵 We Made 1886 Coca Cola Recipe || Glen & Friends Cooking

Publisert 4. april. 2019
1886 Pemberton Coca Cola Recipe Test
Ever wonder how to make the worlds favourite soda pop Coca Cola? Very few people know the 'real' secret recipe... but there are versions out there hand written by the inventor of Coke - John Pemberton. (Watch Part 2: no-tvs.com/tv/video-utvx01Z6JzY.html)
Our diy Coca Cola recipe follows his 1886 version. Glen got the idea to do this back in 2011 from an NPR radio show called 'This American Life', but getting the ingredients for Coca Cola wasn't easy... and still isn't.
Obviously Coca loaf extract is the biggie in the room - but even Neroli Oil Extract is hard to get; in that it’s so expensive!
So if you are going to set out and make Coca Cola at home, or any Cola recipe at home; there will be some comprises. In the end, even with compromises, the flavour profile of the Coke recipes is so complex that minor variations are hard to detect.

Merchandise 7x Flavour [Use 2 oz flavour (below) to 5 gals syrup (I used 15mL per 19L, or 1.3mL / 1L)]
236 mL (8 oz) high proof food grade alcohol
20 drops (0.5g / 1 mL) Orange Oil
30 drops (0.75g / 1.5 mL) Lemon Oil
10 drops (0.25g / .5 mL) Nutmeg Oil
5 drops (0.125g / .25 mL) Coriander Oil
10 drops (0.25g / .5 mL) Neroli Oil (You can sub Bitter Orange Oil)
10 drops (0.25g / .5 mL) Cinnamon (Cassia / True Cinnamon) Oil
Original Sugar Syrup Recipe:
FE Coca (Fluid Extract of Coca) 3 drams USP (10.5 mL)
Citric Acid 3 oz (85g)
Caffeine 1 oz (30 mL)
Sugar 30 #
Water 2.5 gal
Lime Juice 2 pints (473 mL)
Vanilla 1 oz (30 mL)
Caramel 1.5 oz or more to colour
I made 1/8 Original and re-ordered the ingredients to order of use:
Water 1.18L
Sugar 1.7 Kg
Caramel 5.5 mL
FE Coca 1.3 mL (not used)
Vanilla 3.75 mL
Caffeine 3.75 mL
Lime Juice 59.12 mL
Citric Acid 10.6g

Mix together all of the ingredients of the 7X Flavour.
Set this aside in a sealed bottle.
Heat the water sugar and caramel in a large pot.
Stirring continuously, just until sugar is dissolved.
Take off the heat and mix in vanilla, caffeine, lime juice and citric acid.
Stir to fully combine.
Add a measured amount of 7X flavouring to the sugar syrup.
Mix with carbonated water at a ratio of one part syrup and 5 parts water.

  • That ASMR at the end though

  • Glen is "living dangerously." The squozen life.

  • Lol i can notice he is canadian just because the way he says "Out"

  • How can you make this video and not use the Kola nut, which gives Coca Cola half of its name? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kola_nut

    • Well Alexander Biersack - did you look at the formula? Read the supporting documents? If you had you would have learned that by this time the inventor had removed Kola nut from the formula because he didn't want the flavour, just the caffeine. So he was instead using caffeine citrate derived from coffee. I can make this 1886 recipe without Kola, because in 1886 there was no Kola in the recipe.

  • You’d probably get more of a bite from the cocaine

  • i saw this video on facebook, posted by LADbible

  • First time watching a video of yours. I feel like I have just watched Fun With Flags, with Sheldon and Amy substituted. And I like it. Great video. 👍

  • Breaking Bad Home Cooking Edition

  • Kidding me. You cant go down to your nearest ghetto and looks for your closest street pharmacist?!!!

  • WOW! That was very interesting to watch! I remember Coke, as a kid, tasting different from today's version. I grew up in the late 60's and 70's. Who knows I may be wrong about that, however after they came up with New Coke, I don't think they ever went totally back to the old formula. We will never know as both Coke & Pepsi will never let the truth out about their formulas!

  • U should have still got the cocaine

  • This is not cocaine guys no problem -_-

  • I googled neroli oil, either I’m missing something or you overpaid

    • Glen & Friends Cooking ahh, that would explain the price difference! Lol

    • What your looking at is aromatherapy oil, it's not pure concentrated food grade oil... Rub it on your shoulder, put it in a candle, just don't put it in your food. Look up food grade, and you 'll get a different story.

  • Still waiting for that blind test

  • You should of said, we ALMOST made the original

  • Angie Velasco manifiestate

  • should have put coke in it

  • El Chap was trying to make 1886 Coca-Cola the whole time.


  • You forgot about RC Cola for the blind taste test :)

  • Another few adjusted recipes should be good with reducing the sugar and a bitterant.

  • Where is cola nut?

    • By the time he wrote this recipe - Kola nut had been replaced by straight up caffeine

  • Redbull cola

  • “Freshly squozen”, now I’m not an English expert by no means but I don’t think that’s right.

    • it's a perfectly cromulent dialectal variant past tense of squeeze found in parts of the world.

  • 152 Proof alcohol? I'm literally drinking some 151 Proof stuff right now, just to enjoy. Lamb's Navy Overproof. About 30ml in the shot glass, about 50-60ml of water, a splash of lemon juice, stir, then add a mini ice-cube which chills the drink slightly and also adds a bit more water. The end result is enjoyable, in my experience, but I also have EXTENSIVE experience in drinking straight 40% liquor. I've even drank this 75.5% stuff straight before.

  • Yo llegué aquí por un poco de todo alguien más ???

  • Squozen

  • if it dont have cocaine in it, then its not original and the exercise is pointless.

    • Are you going on record right here and now saying there was never cocaine in coca cola?

    • Well maybe read the recipe / formula... and tell me where 'cocaine' was an ingredient. If you don't know the real history of the drink, then your comment is pointless.

  • "squozen" - I like it

  • >skips the bitterant >"doesn't have the same bite as coca cola"

  • Like si vienes por Un Poco De Todo

  • "This is not a real Coca leaf." *Wink* *Wink*

  • Wait a minute so for about 2L of original Coca Cola it cost you more than 400 dollars? But is it worth it?

  • FrEShly squwoozen

  • If you've never tried kombucha, it is carbonated and has incredible health benefits. Try yerba mate, too. You could use xylitol and make it sugar free. Use real birch derived xylitol and it has a 1:1 sweetening to regular white sugar.

  • Freshly “squozen” lime juice? Haha.

  • Diabeters big time.

  • only watching to see if he adds cocaine

  • It's 1am and I should be in bed but here I am watching someone make 130 year old Coca-Cola

  • These two are clowns

  • Why is this in my suggested

  • You can't drive if you've drunk this because the 7x as 175proof alcohol am I right in thinking this isn't like "normal coke,cola,pepsi" I'm from the UK Cornwall now I can get a traditional style coke a cola from this artesian shop ,the price is £6.95 for 550ml bottle . Let's just the taste is very medicinal like that thick trecale veno cough syrup your mom always gave when you were a kid

  • 9:46 :D

  • 'Squozen' isn't a word.

  • squozen

  • clicked cause cocaine

  • I'd have added RC Cola in addition to the others, but that was interesting. Thank you.

  • vengo de updt

  • You know What's really funny? We got one of the greatest sodas in the world from a cokehead.

  • Noone: YT Algorithm: We Made 1886 Coca Cola Recipe...

  • Neroli oil is an essential oil produced from the blossom of the bitter orange tree

  • I'm here for the coke

  • Don't say you made it if you left out the actual Coke.

  • I looked everywhere but i cant find the 'water in a big pot ingredient'

  • Cocaine?

  • nice ASMR at 12:50.

  • This is alcohol free?

  • Wait.. Sooo... There's a factory in Jersey that is filled with cocain?

  • I'm assuming you're canadian from the accent, but I know in the US you can buy "decocanized" coca leaves legally which would at least taste the same as regular coca leaves even if they don't give you the same tingly numbing sensation.

  • i found 5ml of neroli oil for uder $70 in about 5 seconds.

  • No you didn't XD

  • this guy's a nitwit

  • 4:32 for added Cocaine

  • he use cane sugar?

  • It’s really not hard to get blow🤣

  • nothing like Coca cola if it has no cocaine

  • I definitely wouldn't drink that. After you go through all 2.25 litres, report back here in a couple of weeks about how it affected you if you're not dead ;-)

  • You were doing good till Julie joined in.

  • Agwa de Bolivia is a liquor with coca leaf in it.

  • this was like watching Professor Utonium creating the Powerpuff Girls.

  • “Freshly squozen” 😂👌🏻😩

  • Audibly gagged when I saw the amount of sugar

    • Worked at an A&W before and they put at least half that amount in the root beer maker

  • You make it sound like it’s gonna cause the next Chernobyl

  • Coca Cola for Life :D

  • Has accurate milliliter droppers, uses a teaspoon measure for flavouring...

  • this seems straight from an episode of Portlandia

  • That looks like a bay laurel leaf.

  • Freshly swuozen lime juice?

  • So it contains cocaine?

  • Does she play the secret service agent in veep??


  • How have you never had a Pepsi. You have grey hair.

  • No entendí ni madres no se ingles. Quien sabe de algún vídeo en español esto es interesante???

  • Vengo de: un poco de todo

  • Why did this pop up in my recommendations right when I decided to go grab a coke

  • This whole video is a meme

  • “We made 1886 Coca Cola Recipe” *Doesn’t use Coca and Kola nuts*

    • +אור פאר lol

    • well the do kinda use coca but not in is regular form, it's not like coca leaves are dangerous on their own, you make choco out of them, chocolate and more, the reason it's not allowed for regular Americans cus it can become cocaine. companies who specialize in making food with coca prob has a special permit to use the leaves or another form of coca.

  • It’s not genuine until there’s 8 grams of cocaine in each bottle

  • Anyone else come for the comments about cocaine

  • freshly squozen? lol

  • are you sure it's not a coca leaf?

  • cocaine or coca? coca is just a leaf, cocaine is a bunch of garbage plus some components of the leaf.

  • Wait, That's Illegal

  • Like si vienes por un poco de todo

  • It was sitting in my recommendation for weeks...just staring at me..thought I could resist.... Nope.

  • im happy you did that

  • Finally found someone else who uses "squozen" so many tell me it's wrong. But grammatically it feels right.

  • When he says he still cant get all the ingredients he means his cocain dealer is still in prison

  • "For legal reasons that's a joke"

  • U P D T
