Alan's Drink Gateway

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.

  • Drink Gateway from AlansKitchen.comDrinking Water
    Despite the fact that all beverages contain water, water itself is not classed as 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).
  • Non-alcoholic beverages
    A non-alcoholic beverage is one that contains little or no alcohol. This category includes low-alcohol beer, non-alcoholic wine, and apple cider if they contain less than 0.5% alcohol by volume.
  • Soft drinks
    The term "soft drink" specifies the absence of alcohol in contrast to "hard drink" and "drink". "Drink" is nominally neutral but often connotes alcoholic content.
  • Fruit juice
    Fruit juice is a natural product that contains few additives, or none. Citrus products such as orange juice and tangerine juice are very familiar breakfast beverages. Grapefruit juice, pineapple, apple, grape, lime, and lemon juice are also familiar products. Coconut water is a highly nutritious and refreshing juice.
  • Hot beverages
    A hot beverage is any beverage which is normally served heated. This may be through the addition of a heated liquid, such as water or milk, or by directly heating the beverage itself.
  • Miscellaneous
    Some substances may be called either food or drink, and accordingly may be eaten with a spoon or drunk, depending upon their thickness and solutes.  Ex: Buttermilk, Soup, or Yogurt.
