Ouch! Honestly since soda has sugar in it I doubt the rice would work but I've never heard of the alcohol method

Im not even going to ask how.

I've never had to deal with a water damaged phone so I dont know. Seems like soda would be 10x worse because once it dries it will become sticky as hell.

find and destroy those responsible
remove the battery and sim and SD card
depending on how long it was immersed you can either swab the outside of the phone in alcohol or give it a dunk since it was already drowning in soda. You want to allow the alcohol to eat up any sugar
next place the battery and phone into dry rice, cover it completely .
let it sit in the rice for 2-3 days
on day 3 or 4 you can try to power up the phone so long as every molecule of moisture is gone. Pray hard. If you have not succeeded in step 1 then anyone in the immediate vicinity will do
good luck

Soda with sugar leaves residue that acts like a conductor. In my experience the 1st thing to do is remove the battery. The absolutely most important thing to do whenever a device get wet is to remove all power supplies, both external and battery. If the phone is still wet submerse in alcohol to clean it out and let dry in rice. If the phone has dried out with the soda still inside submerse in warm water to "melt" the soda residue away, then dunk in alcohol and place in rice to complete the drying. This method worked for me on a camcorder dropped in a punch bowl and an illuminated gaming keyboard that got drenched in Sprite.
