Today's Lesson
DRINK   酒、酒を飲む


  • We sometimes call a glass of wine, a mug of beer, or a similar amount of alcohol a drink.

    When not followed by an object (for example, a beverage name), the verb drink often means “drink alcohol”.
  • 名詞としてdrink を使う場合、例えばグラス一杯のワイン、ジョッキに入ったビール、または、それらと同じくらいの量を含むアルコール飲料、という意味です。

    (例えば、飲み物の名前などの)目的語を伴わないで動詞として drink を使う場合、酒を飲む、という意味で使われることがよくあります。


  1. a: Would you like a drink?
    b: No thanks. I never drink at lunch.
  2. a: How about a glass of wine?
    b: No thank you. I don't drink. Do you have anything without alcohol?
  3. (getting home at 11:00 p.m.)
    Sorry I'm late. I went out for drinks with some of the people at the office.
  4. (to your friends, at a pub)
    The drinks are on me!
  5. Have fun tonight, Harry, but don't drink too much.
