The first American soft drink?

Franklin Orders
Another Sprite

Benjamin Franklin was first to use the name of America's truly first soft drink:
A house without woman and firelight,
is like a body without soul or sprite.
He neglected to capitalize the name (and to capitalize on the name), but we see to our surprise that "Sprite" - not "Coke" - was our first soft drink!
