Any more input from the experts on patenting recipes?  If all the ingredients used in a food product have been used in other products before (though not in a claimed combination), what would be required to show non-obviousness?  Would unexpected results of some sort be required or commercial success?  
Thanks for any input!

Hi Everyone,
 
I made a lemonade drink, using standard frozen lemonade (like minute maid) and added another 'secret' ingredient    to make this amazing drink.  I have an idea to print my recipe on a bottle and sell it as a 'mixer', which of course can be mixed with alcohol or made virgin.
 
I have a trade name and lable design for marketing, there is no other mixer or ready made drink similar to it on the market.  Do I seek patent or simply use the copyright & trade marks?  
 
Additionally I have been thinking about making an NDA (nondisclosures) and require signatures to even get assistance from bottlers, etc. to help protect my idea so nobody steels or otherwise copy's my idea & beats me to the market.
 
Thoughts?
 
Thanks!

Am I going to be able to tell what the secret ingredient is by tasting/analyzing the drink?  If so, an NDA probably isn't going to be all that helpful...

Ok, so how do I begin with such an idea?  I don't even know how to make a drink to be consumer ready.  The trademark name and label design is pretty easy.  It everything else that I don't even know where to begin.  Any suggestions?
