I'm confused when to use the words 'take' and 'drink'.
When we want someone to drink their medicine, we tell them to 'take' the medicine. On the other hand, when we want someone to drink some juice, we say 'drink' the juice, etc.. In both the cases we are telling them to drink something.
Also, is it right to say: "I take a cup of coffee everyday at noon", or would we say "I drink a cup of coffee everyday at noon" ? Which is a better version? What should I keep in mind when deciding to use 'take' or 'drink' ?
Or are they both correct depending on the context in which they are used ? Or does this not make any difference ?
Thanks for your help in advance.
