He blended the smells of his store into the concoction to give it its signature flavor. The owner of the pharmacy he worked at, Morrison, then named it after his friend Dr. Charles Pepper. They patented their drink in December of 1885. It wasn't until the 1950s when they decided to drop the period (.) from the name, changing it from Dr. Pepper to Dr Pepper. Today, original Dr Pepper drinks are found across the globe in the US, Europe, Asia, Mexico, South America, South Africa, Canada and New Zealand.
