Tonic water contains quinine, which is a common (although not recommended first-line anymore) treatment and preventative for malaria. Gin and tonic was invented by the British in colonial tropics to fight malaria (quinine was isolated from a bark; the gin was added to make it taste better!).

Of course Bach wrote for lots of solo instruments: his greatest works for solo instrument were probably the Goldberg Variations, written for the harpsichord, the Well-Tempered Clavier (which could be played on an organ as well) and his Cello Suites.
