Is there any difference between the words "drink" and "beverage"? The internet is not consistent enough about the definitions. I found all of the following (list not exhaustive):
- they are the same;
- "beverage" does NOT refer to water, but to anything else safe for drinking;
- "beverage" is made to be sold.
Side question: Can I order a "beverage"? I never encountered a question like: "What beverage would you like?"
I already know that ordering "drinks" is a common thing.
