The term “drinks” is often quite misleading for me. I have always thought from young that it would be any kind of drinks. A Coke is a drink. So is hot chocolate. And orange juice. Even plain water.
As I grew up, I learned that “drinks” also means alcoholic beverages. And as a Muslim, we are not allowed to consume alcohol, whether it’s in drinks or food. It is a fundamental rule learned from young. And it’s funny how my elders referred to it as “Satan’s drink”, to steer us away from it. Lol!!
Of course there are so many non-alcoholic drinks we Muslims can enjoy. Like the Lemongrass Ginger Ale pictured above. Put a couple of crushed lemongrass into a pitcher of ginger ale. Let it sit in the fridge for a bit. Pour and drink! We can even make this on the rocks.
