The word drink is primarily a
verb, meaning to ingest liquids. As a noun, it refers to the
liquid thus ingested. It is often used in a narrower sense to
refer to alcoholic beverages (as both a verb and a noun).
is also slang for a body of water,
such as an ocean or a water
hazard on a golf course (e.g. "He hit that one into the
drink."). To drink in is also used metaphorically, as
in to drink in the scenery.
A beverage is a drink
specifically prepared for human consumption. Beverages almost
always largely consist of water. Water is essential for living,
significantly more so than food. Death will usually occur after 1
week without any liquids but humans have been known to survive
some months without food.
