Caleb Bradham, called “Doc” Bradham by friends and acquaintances, was the owner of a Pharmacy at the end of the nineteenth century. In his Pharmacy, Doc Bradham had a soda fountain, as was customaries in pharmacies of the time. He took great pleasure in creating new and unusual mixtures of drinks for customers at the fountain.

By 1895, Coco-cola was a commercial success throughout the United States, and numerous innovators were trying to come up with their own products to cash in on the success that Coco-Cola was beginning to experience.

The drink he created was made with syrup consisting of sugar, essence of vanilla, cola nuts, and other flavourings. The syrup was mixed at the soda fountain with carbonated water before it was served. The drink that Dr Bradham created was originally called “Brad’s drink” by those in his hometown of New Bern who visited the soda fountain and sampled his product.
