As a result of a study that was commissioned by the United States Bureau of Chemistry in 1907, the Whiskey and Coke can be found in print in that year. The United States Bureau of Chemistry dispatched Dr. Lyman Kebler, the director of its drug laboratory, to the South in order to collect information on Coca-Cola, a popular but pharmaceutically problematic beverage. His mission was to learn more about the beverage. Coca-popularity Cola’s among children and those described as having “brain work” was one of the things that Dr. Kebler found out. Therefore, Dr. Lyman involved the proprietor of a soda shop that was located close to a military base. This proprietor “frequently served Coca-Cola to soldiers who mixed the same with whisky and in this way produced what became known as a Coca-Cola high-ball,” according to Dr. Lyman’s account. The proprietor asserted that the combination drove “the soldiers wild and crazy.” Give the Whiskey and Coke a shot, and then get back to me with your thoughts on it.
