A beverage, or drinking a beverage, can represent:
- "Taking in," as in admiring a view or absorbing an idea
- Gaining understanding or knowledge, as in "drinking from the fountain of knowledge"
- Satisfying a yearning or need, or restoring or refueling oneself physically, mentally, emotionally, or spiritually
Consider what the particular beverage represents to you. For example, tea might represent relaxation or thirst-quenching, while coffee might represent energy or morning.
