Humans and their ancestors long sipped from streams. Water is required for life. But over time, people have learned to spike our drink with a wide variety of tempting flavors.

Fruit juices deliver a sweet punch of energy. Hot beverages warm the soul. Coffee and tea perk up the spirit. Herbal tisanes sooth the stomach and cure ills. Alcoholic beverages cement friendships and encourage conversation. Carbonated drinks clear the palate and tickle the nose.
