The Standard Drink: Alcohol

A drink is essentially a liquid meant for human consumption. In addition to simply satisfying thirst, beverages play many important symbolic roles in modern society. One of the most famous is music. Most music is created with the help of a mixer, a drink that is. Common forms of music include hip hop dance music, classical music, blues and rock music. Traditionally, warm drinks have included hot tea, coffee, and chocolate.


Most drinks have one or more ingredients, including sugar, fruits, fruit juices, herbs, alcohol, hops, spices, or yeast. Many people prefer alcoholic drinks, which may contain up to thirty grams (a little over one ounce) of liquor. These drinks have an array of different names depending on the country or region in which they originated, including beer, wine, gin, brandy, whiskey, liqueur, ginger ale, hard liquor, ale, whiskey, scotch, brandy, and rum. Many countries also have their own unique brand of liquors. In fact, there are more varieties of alcoholic drinks than there are foods in the entire world!

The world over, in countries like Thailand, Japan, Malaysia, and India, a popular method of enjoying alcoholic beverages is called dr kiks. This is derived from the Thai term, which means “drink”. It has recently become very popular in countries in Europe and North America, such as the United States, South America, Canada, and Australia. In Japan, it is called sake. In Malaysia, it is called thus dim.

Most people imbibe alcoholic drinks for many different reasons. For some, drinking serves as a form of relaxation. For others, it is an introduction to new things, or just for fun. For some, it serves as a way of relieving stress. Yet, many people drink alcoholic drinks in order to enjoy special occasions, or simply for relaxation.

Regardless, of why you drink, in today’s world it is often assumed that all alcoholic drinks are unhealthy. In fact, this is untrue. When consumed in moderation, alcoholic drinks do not necessarily contain any harmful substances. In fact, the amount of alcohol in one standard drink may actually be lower than one gram of pure caffeine, one of the most potent drugs in existence! And, while caffeine may not make you fall off the sofa, excessive caffeine consumption is often linked to insomnia and can cause depression. For this reason, if you do decide to take on the challenge of consuming too much caffeine, be sure to avoid the after-dinner coffee.

Many people who are drinking alcohol as a way of life will tell you that they would never give up, if they could. Unfortunately, this is probably not an accurate assessment of the true amount of alcohol they consume on a daily basis. For example, many people will claim that they only drink a “sour” drink, such as a V8 or wine at dinner. However, in reality, they drink several drinks, several glasses each day! The wise alcoholics will cut back on their drinking, but even the most disciplined drinker should expect to have a drink or two over the course of the day.
