This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
In US English, either eat or drink could be used with soup. I hadn't noticed it before, but although you generally drink liquids, you eat with a spoon, so you would drink a cup of soup and eat a bowl of soup.
"having soup" would be more generalized. what do you say?
