Make Your Own Cola, Then Never Drink Cola Again

This link takes you to a recipe for open-source cola! You can mix the stuff up yourself.

The downside to the process, as pointed out by BoingBoing, is that you realize the Cola is just a cup of sugar with enough other ingredients to dissolve it. Plus, you may want to pay attention to these warnings:

  • Caffeine can be toxic in high doses. Be careful not to add too much to your mixture, and do not ingest large quantities.
  • Many of the oils needed for flavoring can burn skin. Use caution when preparing. They can also dissolve the plastic lining of a refrigerator; store with caution.
  • Gum arabic is available in two forms, art grade, and food grade. Be sure to get food grade Gum arabic, or you could have an unpleasant toxic reaction.

So, thirsty?
