National Have a Coke Day
-- Coca-Cola is a carbonated soft drink that is produced by The Coca-Cola Company. Coca-Cola was named after the coca leaves that originally provided its flavor. The original Coca-Cola recipe contained 9mg of cocaine per glass. In 1903 Coca-Cola began using a non-narcotic coca leaf extract to provide that distinctive flavor.

Read: For God, Country, and Coca-Cola
-- The unauthorized history of the great American soft drink and the company that makes it. From its origins as a patent medicine in Reconstruction Atlanta through its rise as the dominant consumer beverage of the American Century, the story of Coke is as unique, tasty, and effervescent as the drink itself. With vivid portraits of the entrepreneurs who founded the company — and of the colorful cast of hustlers, swindlers, ad men, and con men who have made Coca-Cola the most recognized trademark in the world—this is business history at its best: in fact, The Real Thing.

Image: Mexican Coke Glass Bottles, 12 fl oz, 24 PackMexican Coca-Cola -- Made with real cane sugar. 24 classic Coca-Cola thick glass bottles - 12 Fl oz. Adding to the nostalgia factor, the Mexican Coca-Cola glass bottle does not have a twist-off cap (for plastic bottles) or a pull-tab (for cans). A bottle opener is required to drink the bottle's contents. Product of Mexico.
