Coca Cola is denying this is the “real thing” but it was discovered in the personal notes of Coca-Cola founder John Pemberton and a lot of people are saying it’s legit. Some of the researchers who have been playing around with it say they could recreate it and testers couldn’t tell the difference, others say it was close but it was still ”a little off”. Still pretty cool if it’s legit. Although if it is I’ll probably be getting some very serious calls/emails VERY soon. Copy it down while you can.
The main syrup:
–Fluid extract of Coca: 3 drams USP. (–’USP’ stands for United States Pharmacopeia . . . they set standards for the preparation of medicine.)
–Citric acid: 3 ounces
–Caffeine: 1 ounce

–Water: 2.5 gallons
–Lime juice: 2 pints, one quart
–Vanilla: 1 ounce
–Caramel: 1.5 ounce or more, for color
The secret “7X” flavor . . . Every five gallons of syrup gets two ounces of flavor.

–Orange oil: 20 drops
–Lemon oil: 30 drops
–Nutmeg oil: 10 drops
–Coriander: 5 drops
–Neroli: 10 drops
–Cinnamon: 10 drops
Shel came in to talk Grammy’s and Gaga. Fun hour. Here are some highlights.
Here’s the 7am Buzz with Alli’s Grammy Recap
A little pitchy for me dog. Kidding. I think it’s pretty good. This isn’t Ke$ha’s first brush with talent (Kidding…again).
Here’s her pretty decent cover of Dead Flowers.
Here’s Ke$ha absolutely KILLING (in a good way) Radiohead when she 13.
1) Thanks to CBS for pulling down the earlier video. Classy. Found another copy if you missed it.
2) She DIDN’T actually have a stroke!!!!! I’m amazed. This now becomes one of live TV’s all time epic fails. If you bomb so bad you have to be examined by EMT’s that is rock bottom. Christina Aguilera didn’t even get to that level of fail at the Super Bowl.
Here’s a link to the latest: CBS: It wasn’t a stroke
