What’s in it for me? See how the world’s favorite beverages have influenced human history.

What’s your favorite drink? Do you enjoy a nice beer after work? A glass of wine with your meal? Or maybe you prefer to stay off the bottle, sticking with tea and coffee?
Whatever your tipple of choice might be, there’s a good chance that it has a rich history you have yet to learn about – and that’s where these blinks come in. They show you how some of our most beloved beverages, from rum to Coca-Cola, were discovered, developed and drunk. As well as learning how these drinks changed over time, you’ll also get an insight into how the drinks themselves changed the course of human history. You’ll also find out
• how a tax on rum helped force the British out of America;
• why the French Revolution could be blamed on drinking coffee; and
• why one Soviet general tried to disguise his Coca-Cola as vodka.

Enjoy!! RAF
