Goodfellas : What was henry whacking the coke up with at Sandy's place?

What was henry whacking the coke up with at Sandy's place?

During his looong day towards the end of the movie in the hotel room he says(in voiceover) that he was going to whack up the stuff with quinine? I tried to spell it like i heard it.

Does anyone know about this? Would they really mix that stuff in? I looked it up and it says its a malaria treatment. What would that stuff do to someone who inhales it? or did i hear it wrong?

Yes, they actually do mix it in in real life. The stuff is pretty safe in moderate amounts, it's actually an ingredient in tonic water and has been used as a pain reliever for centuries.
