Remember my last post promising a solution for flat undrinkable Coca-Cola?
Well...... there are a few solutions:
1) Use it as an ingredient for baking/cooking. A ton of recipes here.
2) Recarbonate the flat soda and drink it?! Yes, really. YOU CAN RECARBONATE IT!!! ( You can even make your own soda. I'll share a post about it soon.) Meantime, read this to find out how.
3) Recarbonate the flat soda and use as a science aid............ for the infamous Coke-Mentos experiment!
And that my friends is exactly what I did with the leftover flat Coca-Cola - the infamous Coke-Mentos experiment!
First of all, I added some flat Tesco Choice Sarsi (it was only RM 0.40 so how can I not buy it?). Then I added about 1/4 tsp of yeast into the bottle and left it to 'ferment' for 2 days.

I have always wanted to try a recipe using Coco-Cola as an ingredient. I never did cause I always felt that using Coco-Cola as an ingredient is rather expensive. This time though, I managed to buy a bottle of Coco-Cola on discount. But, instead of enjoying it straightaway, I kept it for a big party gathering. Unfortunately, no parties took place and the Coco-Cola went flat. So......ha, ha, I was *forced* to do a Coco-Cola recipe now instead of flushing it down the drain! (Flat soft drinks are undrinkable to me!)
I chose to do a BBQ sauce. I saw many different ones on the internet but I finally chose this one by The Neelys. It sounded the best.
When we first tasted it, we thought it tasted awful! There was such a strong smell and taste of vinegar. But, after I added about 1/3 cup of brown sugar, it was much better! The balance of sweet and sour was just nice.
