Thanks to native speaker, to my question.
My question is at the title, when you say only "beverages", would it implicitly mean (only) the alcohol?
Merriam Unabridged says,
1 : liquid for drinking; especially : such liquid other than water (such as tea, milk, fruit juice, beer) usually prepared (as by flavoring, heating, admixing) before being consumed
2 archaic : any of several prepared drinks: such as a : a drink made by passing water through pressed grapes b : weak beer c : diluted cider
3 dialectal, British : a drink or drink money especially when exacted from someone wearing manifestly new clothes
It includes other than alcohol. Could you kindly enlighten me?
I truly appreciate your support.
