@splitshockvirus Think it might be regional too. Also, in some of these cases, the US ends up using the old-timey English word for something while the UK now uses something else
@splitshockvirus I did some googling and it turns out "beverage" is derived from French, whereas "drink" is from Anglo-Saxon. Why I associate "beverage" with the US, I dunno, but maybe I just hear it used more often here.
