Dr. John stith pemberton (1830-1888) was an American pharmacist, who invented Coca in 1886. He had invented a very popular drink called French wine of Coca, which contained French Bordeaux wine, cocaine and caffeine (from the Kola nut). With the band of alcohol consumption in 1885, Pemberton changed the formula omitting the French wine.
Instead, he added sugar and citric acid and essential oils of many fruits to the drink, and the original coca-cola was created. Pemberton advertised it not only as a “delicious, exhilarating, refreshing and invigorating” beverage but also as the ideal “temperance drink”. The formula for Coca-Cola is closely guarded secret.
