It was Coke, but Pepsi is sooo much better.
In 1767, the first drinkable man-made glass of carbonated water was created by Englishmen Doctor Joseph Priestley. Three years later, Swedish chemist Torbern Bergman invented a generating apparatus that made carbonated water from chalk by the use of sulfuric acid. Bergman's apparatus allowed imitation mineral water to be produced in large amounts.
In 1810, the first United States patent was issued for the "means of mass manufacture of imitation mineral waters" to Simons and Rundell of Charleston, South Carolina. However, carbonated beverages did not achieve great popularity in America until 1832, when John Mathews invented his apparatus for the making carbonated water. John Mathews then mass-manufactured his apparatus for sale to soda fountain owners.
Additionally, Dr. Pepper came in 1885, Coke in 1886, and Pepsi in 1898
I think it was first like, soda water or bubbly water, but the first soda (like what we'd now consider soda) was Ginger Ale. It was invented in 1851 in Ireland.
Coke was created in 1886 as a medicine type drink. It was made by pharmacist Doctor John Pemberton, and in the first year he had actually lost money on it.
