Cantrell and Cochrane's

"Cantrell and Cochrane’s Ginger Ale (Aromatic)," a soft drink of Irish manufacture, was a fixture in turn-of-the-century Dublin pubs. The fact that Bloom thinks of it in Lotus Eaters as a "temperance beverage" suggests that it was commonly consumed by itself, rather than used as a mixer. The name "ginger ale," coined in the mid-19th century, likewise points to its origins as an alternative to alcoholic drinks.
