* Water 2.5 gal
* Lime juice 2 pints 1 qrt

* Caramel 1.5oz or more to colour (contains 4-methylimidazole)
7X flavour (use 2oz of flavour to 5 gals syrup):

* Lemon oil 30 drops
* Nutmeg oil 10 drops
* Coriander 5 drops
* Neroli 10 drops

The increased risk of the most common congenital malformations entailed by moderate consumption of caffeine is very slight. However, caffeine potentiates the teratogenic effect of other substances, such as tobacco, alcohol, and acts synergistically with ergotamine and propranolol to induce materno-fetal vasoconstrictions leading to malformations induced by ischemia. Therefore, even though caffeine does not seem to be harmful to the human fetus when intake is moderate and spread out over the day, some associations, especially with alcohol, tobacco, and vasoconstrictive or anti-migraine medications should be avoided.
* Water 2.5 gal

Never been a big cola drinker, but used to drink it as a kid because my doctor said if you have been sick it is the best drink for lining your stomach to help you keep food down.
Anyone know if there is anything true about what i was told ?

Well, it is a mighty interesting coincidence, you must agree!!!
