Probably it was "posca"
This is a mixture of vinegar and water in the ancient Greece and Rome.

But i suspect, that there were some drinks in ancient Egypt or Mesopotamia. Something like herbal tea, for example.


The first soft drink noted was called sherbet in 1800. It was first originated in middle east. It contains different herbs and citrus fruits.


The first soft drink that was more than just carbonated water was Ginger Ale in 1851 in Ireland
