In the 1860's, Angelo Mariani, an Italian businessman and chemist, was intrigued by the stimulating effects of the coca plant (Cocaine). He had some ideas about concocting a coca-wine beverage that he could market for healthful reasons.
He started importing coca leaves from the Andes, soaked them with Bordeaux wine, and called his product Vin Mariani or Coca Mariani. The beverage contained wine laced with cocaine. It was originally marketed as a healthful tonic and became so popular that he soon became the worlds largest importer of coca leaves. Coca Mariani was endorsed by many significant people including Jules Verne, William McKinley, Thomas Edison, and Pope Leo XIII.
Even Mary Shelley's Frankenstein was said to imbibe the concoction and I think you can see it in the way he walks. The success rate of his product inspired many others to further explore and create similar concoctions, including one John Styth Pemberton, a 19th Century Atlanta Georgia pharmacist and the eventual inventor of Coca-Cola. As a chemist in the 1800's, Pemberton had already been dabbling in patent (quack) medicines, manufacturing such products as Triplex Liver Pills, Globe of Flower Cough Syrup, and other patent medicines. Inspired by Coca Marianis success, Pemberton developed a product that he registered as French Wine Coca--Ideal Nerve and Tonic Stimulant, and he claimed that his tonic was the most Successful and Pleasant Tonic of the Age. Coincidently, the county that he practiced business in went dry in 1886, and though this tonic was developed strictly as a medicine, in 1886 he added another ingredient and turned it into a soft-drink or temperance drink.Pemberton named his new concoction "Coca-Cola". The original Coca Cola syrup / extract was added to soda water and, as an advertisement he wrote read, the drink was said to be an Intellectual beverage and temperance drink that contains the valuable tonic and nerve stimulant properties of the Coca plant and Cola nuts, and makes not only a delicious, exhilarating, refreshing and invigorating beverage (dispensed from the soda water fountain or in other carbonated beverages) but also a valuable Brain Tonic, and cure all for nervous affections-sick head-ache, neuralgia, hysteria, melancholy. What he (knowingly or unknowingly) was describing, was the stimulating effects of Cocaine!
So it is true, the original soft drink that we know of as Coca Cola or simply "Coke". Originally have cocaine in it according to its inventor, J. Pemberton Chemist, Sole Proprietor, Atlanta Ga.
