If you stole the Coca Cola secret formula, then made a soda publically using the same ingredients. Coca Cola wouldn’t be able to sue you without declassifying its secret recipe!

I feel like the moment you started making your own coke you’d find yourself at the bottom of a lake with your feet tethered to blocks.

The actual secret ingredient is marketing

They say the recipe for Sprite is lemon and lime, but I tried to make it at home. There’s more to it than that.

False. Many court cases happen under seal. This is common in trade secret lawsuits. If that weren’t the case, it would be very difficult to enforce those laws. By the way, if you figured out the recipe yourself without stealing it, it would be perfectly legal to share it in the United States. Source: am an intellectual property lawyer

Just buy a few thousand bottles, re-bottle it and release it as you limited edition stuff and wait for the court case to start! You can bring them down, OP!
