What kind of drink are you?

Hey everyone! What do you like to drink the most? Do you have your favorite drink? What do you reach for on a hot summer day? What do you drink with breakfast? Of course, today’s quiz is about drinks! Answer twenty questions to find out what kind of drink you are. And while on this topic, let’s learn more about the history and origin of the beverages.

A drink (or beverage) is a liquid intended for human consumption. In addition to their basic function of satisfying thirst, drinks play important roles in human culture. Common types of drinks include plain drinking water, milk, juice, smoothies, and soft drinks. Traditionally warm beverages include coffee, tea, and hot chocolate. Caffeinated drinks that contain the stimulant caffeine have a long history.

In addition, alcoholic drinks such as wine, beer, and liquor, which contain the drug ethanol, have been part of human culture for more than 8,000 years. Non-alcoholic drinks often signify drinks that would normally contain alcohol, such as beer, wine, and cocktails, but are made with a sufficiently low concentration of alcohol by volume. The category includes drinks that have undergone an alcohol removal process such as non-alcoholic beers and de-alcoholized wines.

When the human body becomes dehydrated, a person experiences thirst. This craving for fluids results in an instinctive need to drink. Thirst is regulated by the hypothalamus in response to subtle changes in the body’s electrolyte levels, and also as a result of changes in the volume of blood circulating. The complete deprivation of drinks (that is, water) will result in death faster than the removal of any other substance besides oxygen. Water and milk have been basic drinks throughout history. As water is essential for life, it has also been the carrier of many diseases.

As society developed, techniques were discovered to create alcoholic drinks from the plants that were available in different areas. The earliest archaeological evidence of wine production yet found has been at sites in Georgia (c. 6000 BCE) and Iran (c. 5000 BCE). Beer may have been known in Neolithic Europe as far back as 3000 BCE and was mainly brewed on a domestic scale. The invention of beer (and bread) has been argued to be responsible for humanity’s ability to develop technology and build civilization. Tea likely originated in Yunnan, China, during the Shang Dynasty (1500 BCE – 1046 BCE) as a medicinal drink.

Drinking has been a large part of socializing throughout the centuries. In Ancient Greece, a social gathering for the purpose of drinking was known as a symposium, where watered down wine would be drunk. The purpose of these gatherings could be anything from serious discussions to direct indulgence. In Ancient Rome, a similar concept of a convivium took place regularly.

Many early societies considered alcohol a gift from the gods, leading to the creation of gods such as Dionysus. Other religions forbid, discourage, or restrict the drinking of alcoholic drinks for various reasons. In some regions with a dominant religion, the production, sale, and consumption of alcoholic drinks are forbidden to everybody, regardless of religion.

Toasting is a method of honoring a person or wishing goodwill by taking a drink. Another tradition is that of the loving cup, at weddings or other celebrations such as sports victories a group will share a drink in a large receptacle, shared by everyone until empty.

In East Africa and Yemen, coffee was used in native religious ceremonies. As these ceremonies conflicted with the beliefs of the Christian church, the Ethiopian Church banned the secular consumption of coffee until the reign of Emperor Menelik II. The drink was also banned in Ottoman Turkey during the 17th century for political reasons and was associated with rebellious political activities in Europe.

Water is the chief constituent in all drinks and the primary ingredient in most. Water is purified before drinking. Purification methods include filtration and the addition of chemicals, such as chlorination. The importance of purified water is highlighted by the World Health Organization, which points out that 94% of deaths from diarrhea – the third biggest cause of infectious death worldwide at 1.8 million annually – could be prevented by improving the quality of the victim’s environment, particularly safe water.

A non-alcoholic drink contains little or no alcohol. This category includes low-alcohol beer, non-alcoholic wine, and apple cider if they contain a sufficiently low concentration of alcohol by volume (ABV). The exact definition of what is “non-alcoholic” and what is not, depends on local laws: in the United Kingdom, “alcohol-free beer” is under 0.05% ABV, “de-alcoholized beer” is under 0.5%, while “low-alcohol beer” can contain no more than 1.2% ABV. The term “soft drink” specifies the absence of alcohol in contrast to “hard drink” and “drink”. The term “drink” is theoretically neutral but often is used in a way that suggests alcoholic content. Drinks such as soda pop, sparkling water, iced tea, lemonade, root beer, fruit punch, milk, hot chocolate, tea, coffee, milkshakes, and tap water and energy drinks are all soft drinks.
