Drinks are liquids specially prepared for drinking. Drinks are one of the most important elements of food culture. They are products that quench thirst (soft drinks), and also often have a certain psychotropic effect - exciting (tonic drinks, energy drinks), heady (alcoholic drinks). The raw materials for the production of most drinks are usually various sugary products - honey, fruit and tree juices. For the population of the Mediterranean, drinks have long traditionally been made mainly from grapes, and in countries with a temperate climate - from grain, among pastoralists - from milk.
