Which common beverage was widely used as a really helpful medicine?

Sprite
Coca-cola
tonic water
Earl Grey tea
The bit­ter-­tast­ing quinine was added to the drink as a pro­phy­lac­tic against malaria. Tonic water was orig­i­nal­ly intended for con­sump­tion in tropical areas of South Asia and Africa, where that disease is endemic. Orig­i­nal­ly, no sugar was added. Most tonic water today contains a less sig­nif­i­cant amount of quinine, so the taste is much milder.
