Natural Cola

Untitled-2001

I’m posing in honor of Coca-Cola because I can’t drink it so I made my own.

If you want the recipe, go to Not Quite Nigella. The only changes I made were: we used Turbinado Sugar instead of white sugar, Sucanat instead of brown sugar, I didn’t use coriander seeds but 1 teaspoon of coriander powder, I didn’t use lavender, I used 1 cinnamon stick instead of cassia bark and I didn’t add caramel food coloring.

These are the ingredients before we boiled it.

After 20 minutes of boiling, we cooled it and filtered it.

I thought the color looked a little like mud.

I added half a cup of Natural Sparkling Water and half a cup of my Natural Cola together and I drank it.

It was DELICIOUS!!!

And then came the BURP!
