A drink, or beverage, is a liquid which is specifically prepared for human consumption. In addition to filling a basic human need, beverages form part of the culture of human society.

Types of beverage


Despite the fact that all beverages contain water, water itself is not a beverage. The word beverage has traditionally been defined as not referring to water.

Alcoholic beverages

An alcoholic beverage is a drink that contains ethanol, commonly known as alcohol (although in chemistry the definition of “alcohol” includes many other compounds).

Beer has been a part of human culture for 8000 years.In Germanymarker, and many other European countries such as the United Kingdommarker and Irelandmarker, drinking beer and alcoholic beverages in the local pub is a very cultural tradition.

Non-alcoholic beverages

Non-alcoholic beverages are drinks that usually contain alcohol, such as beer and wine, but contain less than .5% alcohol by volume. This category includes low-alcohol beer, non-alcoholic wine, and apple cider.

Soft drinks

The name "soft drink" specifies a lack of alcohol by way of contrast to the term "hard drink" and the term "drink", the latter of which is nominally neutral but often carries connotations of alcoholic content. Beverages like colas, sparkling water, iced tea, lemonade, squash, and fruit punch are among the most common types of soft drinks, while hot chocolate, hot tea, coffee, milk, tap water, alcohol, and milkshakes do not fall into this classification. Many carbonated soft drinks are optionally available in versions sweetened with sugars or with non-caloric sweetener.

Hot beverages


Some substances may be called either food or drink, and accordingly may be eaten with a spoon or drunk, depending upon their thickness and solid ingredients.
