Did You Know?
Despite the fact that all beverages contain water, water itself is not a beverage. The word beverage has traditionally been defined as not referring to water.

Non-alcoholic beverages are drinks that usually contain alcohol, such as beer and wine, but contain less than .5% alcohol by volume. This category includes low-alcohol beer, non-alcoholic wine, and apple cider.

The name "soft drink" specifies a lack of alcohol by way of contrast to the term "hard drink" and the term "drink", the latter of which is nominally neutral but often carries connotations of alcoholic content.
