A Brief History Of Our 4 Best Drinks
A drink is simply a liquid intended for consumption. As well as their primary function of quenching thirst, drinks also play many important symbolic roles in modern society. Most common forms of drink are juice, milk, water and cold beverages such as hot chocolate, coffee and tea. Historically, warm beverages were typically tea, coffee and hot chocolate. For most of human history, warm drinks were consumed at meals, but today many people prefer the cool (but still hot) beverage.
Carbonated drinks have gained much popularity over the last decade or so. Most carbonated drinks contain carbon dioxide delivered by a pump to pressurize the bottle. This allows carbonation to be a process rather than a product, which means there is no real, physical “carbonation”. Some people refer to carbonated drinks as sparkling wines, but technically they are not the same thing.
Drincan wine is derived from the word drincan, which in its Old English form means “of the vine”. The grape used in this type of drink is specifically chosen to produce a very sweet, syrupy liquid that some compare to sparkling wine, though it has a lower alcohol content than many hard wines. Modern daydrincan wine is sweeter and has less of a tannin than the original. It is similar to azy, fruity white drink that some people drink after dinner. A variation on this theme is called meduji, which is an herbal white drink with a mango-flavored syrup. Though most people understand what meduji is, they may not know what the root of the word is: “medu” means “mixed up” in the Polynesian language.
Other types of alcoholic drinks are usually notated as either coffee or tea. Coffee is derived from the Latin “cereus”, which means “of the sun”. This beverage is a hot cup of black coffee that usually has skimmed milk in it. It has gained much popularity in the United States, where it can be found at almost any coffee shop.
Tea, while not technically an alcoholic drink, is one of the world’s best-known types of relaxation drinks. There is a reason it is referred to as the “other white”. Green tea is known to contain antioxidants that help to reduce the signs of aging, as well as lower cholesterol and blood pressure levels. It is most popular in Asian countries, especially China, Japan, and South Korea. For this reason, this beverage is often included on medical health lists.
Water is the fourth most consumed drink in the world. It is recommended for everyone to drink at least 8 glasses of water each day. This substance is beneficial for our health because it helps to flush out toxins and can help relieve constipation, stomach pain, and other symptoms of digestive disorders. Water was consumed by man originally for its cleansing and cooling properties, so it comes as no surprise that drinking water has such a long history, if not always been the safest way to consume it.
