The History Of A Wide Range Of Drinks
A drink is any liquid intended for consumption meant for human consumption. In addition to their common role of satisfying thirst, liquids also play significant roles in modern society. Common varieties of drinks available in stores include cold juices, milk, soda and even hot chocolate. Typically, drinks are served hot, but some are served cold as well.
Many forms of drink are derived from the specific beverage of one country or region. Coffee is a classic example that is popular in many countries around the world. As a drink, coffee is made from selected coffee berries, ground beans and other ingredients. One method of brewing coffee involves passing water over the beans and then allowing the java to steep for a while. Another method of brewing involves putting the beans in a pressure cooker and heating the liquid to boiling.
Juice drinks are very popular beverages made from fruit. There are hundreds of different flavors of fruit juices available, but the most popular include cranberry juice, orange juice, and grape juice. Frozen fruits are also used in some juices. Drinks containing fruit can be served in a number of different ways, but fruit juices tend to be served in smoothie-like beverages with ice cream and some sort of added flavor.
Soft drinks, as their name implies, are a mixture of carbonated water and sometimes flavored syrup or foam. Most soft drinks contain between two and fourteen grams of caffeine per ounce. Popular soft drinks include Mountain Dew, Squirtles, and Fanta. Most soft drinks are carbonated, but there are a few examples with added flavors. Lemon drops, lime drops, strawberry drops, and tea extracts are just some of the additional ingredients commonly found in non-carbonated soft drinks.
Fruit punches are a mixture of fruit juices and either sugar or artificial sweetener, often with a small amount of ice. Fruit punch can be consumed on its own, mixed with another beverage, or enjoyed by itself. Fruit punches are very popular among children and are the drink of choice for many adults, although some do not enjoy the taste. Fruit punches can be consumed in a number of ways, but most are typically consumed with another beverage such as soda.
Coffee has a long history in both world of drink, and is consumed in many different countries. Much like tea, coffee can be consumed in a number of different ways, most often in the morning or evening hours. One thing that is worth noting about coffee is that the longer beans are soaked, the stronger the taste and aroma. Many people prefer a stronger taste over others, while others enjoy the subtlety of coffee that only a few brands have.
