Nailed It! DIY Squozen Cola Recipe
We’ve been working hard to refine our squozen cola recipe – a riff on a coca cola recipe from 1886. After trying a bunch of different recipes and variations we stumbled on the open cola recipe, and the cube cola recipe – both of which are close to the Pemberton 1886 coca cola formula in flavour. We’ve used the basic method, and tweaked the ingredients.
7.50 mL orange oil
7.00 mL lime oil
2.00 mL lemon oil
0.80 mL cassia oil
1.50 mL nutmeg oil
0.50 mL coriander oil
0.50 mL lavender oil
0.50 mL neroli oil
20g gum arabic
40 mL water
Measure out the oils into a small glass container.
In a high sides glass mixing jug, whisk together the gum arabic and the water.
While whisking the gum mixture at high speed, slowly dribble in the oils mixture.
Whisk at high speed for 15-20 minutes, or until oils and water emulsify.
No oils should be visible on the surface.
200 mL double strength caramel colouring
65 mL citric acid
100 mL water
22 mL vanilla extract
2 – 5 mL Kola extract depending on your caffeine tolerance
Flavour emulsion from above
Add the caramel colouring to a medium glass flask.
In another glass container stir the citric acid into the water and mix until clear.
Add the citric acid water to the caramel.
Mix in the Vanilla and the Kola extract.
Whisk in the flavour emulsion.
This is the cola concentrate, which will make 90L of cola.
The Cola Syrup:
800 mL water
1.4 kG sugar
27 – 32 mL cola concentrate depending on your taste
Dissolve the sugar in the water over low heat.
This will take a while, stir and be patient.
Continue stirring until the syrup is clear, remove from the heat and allow to cool to room temp.
Stir in the cola concentrate.
This cola syrup will make 14L of cola.
Mixing the cola
The cola is a 7:1 mix.
1 part cola syrup to 7 parts carbonated water.
You can mix by the glass, or in a corny keg.
