I don't know if you've seen this,but,here's a recent ad describing orangine as an orange liqueur and cocoa eau-de-vie(translates to brandy or spirits):Footnote:
I'm not saying Orangine wasn't a soft drink. I'm just suggesting that it might have started out as some type of cordial that eventually "developed" into a soft drink. The same applies to the Schmidt & Company version of Orangine. I don't normally associate the word "tonic" with a typical soft drink. Plus, there seems to be increasing evidence to suggest that "Orangine" type beverages might have originated in Europe.
