*Right now, Smoothie became a fad in Japan*
I had no idea what it was until TV introduced it recently. It seems that Smoothie is a sherbet type drink made by frozen fruits & sometimes vegetables are used. Links of what it is and pictures. Actually, I've never tried it. Have you tried it and liked it :-)
My favorite breakfast drink is milk-base Mixed Juice with strawberries and banana. I ask my husband to crush ice and mix them with two kinds of fruits & a bit of honey. Really refreshing and wakes me up in the morning. Only if strawberries are available during the hot season :-)
For me, vegetable is not for a drink ^^;
(From here posting to Etymology page)
*Difference between "Beverage and Drink"*
When I was writing this post, I whimsically thought about these two words. (wondering which word to use). My image from 'beverage' was totally alcoholic and 'drink' includes both. Through fiddling pc, I learned that there isn't definite differences. Sort of according to the situation. They are the examples I found.
When you are asked by these words at the restaurant;
*What beverage do you have? ←you need to pay for the drink.
*What would you like to drink? ←whatever the drink you need
(pay or not to pay like water or green tea)
"Let's go for a drink" among adults means alcohol.
PS> I learned that a cold wave is hitting America right now. I DO hope my friends are doing fine. Wishing you to get through the tough weather and survive!!!
Visiting you tonight♪
