A drink is any liquid meant for human consumption intended for consumption by humans. In addition to simply fulfilling thirst, liquids also play significant roles in modern society. Common varieties of drinks include juice, milk, water and tea. Typically, beverages are heated in order to increase their flavor, or mixed with food to make them more palatable.
One of the oldest forms of drink is water. Although we typically think of water as a beverage, it also had ancient origins as solvents, including an ancient method of distillation. Water could be evaporated using heat or by using pressure. Pure water, along with salt, which was the most commonly consumed salt in ancient times, is the earliest form of carbonation that was known to man.
Other common types of drink are fruit juices and smoothies, which are drinks containing fruit. Fruits have high levels of sugar, which contributes to the high level of carbonation in these drinks. Pure fruit juice, along with certain fruits mixed with a small amount of yeast, has a low level of carbonation but can still be considered carbonated. Mixed drinks, which contain different flavors of fruits, are called a hybrid. Examples of hybrid drinks are green berry juice, apple juice and herbal teas.
Soft drinks are made by carbonating water with a softener ingredient such as saccharin. In the United States, one standard drink is 16 ounces of most brands of soft drinks, which is generally the size of a traditional glass of water. Some companies create diet drinks that are considered diet sodas, containing no calories or no artificial colorings and have zero calories. The calorie count and caloric content of soft drinks vary greatly.
Wine has three parts, the main body is the grape, and the other components are the other parts of the vine. If you take the time to look at the nutritional facts on the back of the bottle, you will see that it contains no calories, no fat, no sugar and includes significant amounts of antioxidants. Because red wines contain more than their white counterparts, they are considered healthier than their co-conspirators. The calorie content of one drink may be slightly higher than another, depending on how much alcohol is included in the beverage and the weight and other factors affecting it.
This article was designed to be an introduction to alcoholic drink drinking. There is a lot more information about this topic that can be found in its many articles, as well as in many of my other articles about relaxation drinks and general health. The information presented here is merely a basic overview of the issue, and more details about each of the beverages will be provided in future articles. For now, enjoy your next drink!
