    What about whiskey? That is sometimes mixed with water. :3

    If the answer is yes, it is probably not a beverage.
    Water should never, ever be mixed in with alcohol. And when I asked someone in a local club to get me a Southern Comfort and lemonade, they looked at me funny... and later when I sipped at the drink I immediately realised they had somehow translated 'lemonade' as 'water' ...or at least something that had no fizz whatsoever and was rather bland.

    I could probably think of a few drinks that shouldn't be mixed with alcohol, now that I think about it...
    I disagree - tonic water or soda water are perfectly valid mixers, for example. You could cut your whiskey or bourbon with tap water, although I wouldn't advise it, I'd just add ice cubes.

    Why the hell did you ask for lemonade instead of ginger ale? I too have suffered from being served lemonade instead of fizzy lemonade since emigrating - our country set us up for failure, man.

    Anyway, vodka + V8 vegetable juice = valid

    vodka + Campbell's tomato soup = not a thing

    If it can go with tomato juice, it can probably go with tomato soup, too. Someone obviously has to try this... not me, though. I don't like vodka.

    I guess vodka pasta sauce is a thing, along with bourbon barbecue sauce, whiskey chocolate cake, jello shots, etc. I sense a strangely ambiguous dinner party in the future.

    Next query:

    STONE SOUP - FOOD, OR FRAUD?

    Obviously BoB is on the DRINK side, seeing how hard he's arguing for it.

    Here's a tip: if you still need to have something to drink with what you're eating--i.e., SOUP A FOOD--it's not a drink!

    For Christ's sake, something like 99% of soup is salty.

    I just had lunch... a jumbo sausage, pasta with pepper cream sauce and thai beef noodle soup as the drink. No other drink. The soup washed it all down just fine... although it certainly lacked in the noodle department!

    Soups are generally salty, but that is the fault of chefs, manufacturers and society. You can have relatively little salt in your soup and still have it taste nice. You could probably come up with saltless soup (a quick search says it's easily doable). Also, salt content doesn't automatically make something a food any more than sugar content does.

    HERE'S YOUR DRINK, DANIEL.

    Now I really want to make soup, despite swearing off of soup forever last week when the soup I had for lunch leaked all over my bag, resulting in $130 in library fines

    Also, for the "if it's in a bowl, it's food" argument, what about when you go to those coffeehouses that serve their drinks in giant bowls instead of cups for some reason?

    If soup is a drink, can you drink it through a straw?

    BoB, you're just a weirdo. Everyone else isn't wrong. You are just a strange, strange man.

    Wow, that sucks. Danielle once bought some milk and it leaked all through her bag, we had to throw the bag out in the end.
    Also, for the "if it's in a bowl, it's food" argument, what about when you go to those coffeehouses that serve their drinks in giant bowls instead of cups for some reason?
    Not to mention if you put water into a bowl and use a spoon to drink it... well, it's still a drink, isn't it?
    If soup is a drink, can you drink it through a straw?
    You can. It's certainly easier than drinking a milkshake through a straw. Although with some soups that have chunks of food in them, the chunks of food may jam in the straw, which would ruin the experience.

    The soup I had at lunch could definitely be drunk through a straw, it was very thin. The tomato and basil soup I had yesterday would probably have been suited to it, too...

    I worked as a server for a year, and never did anyone say, "...oh, and I think I'll have a bowl of chicken noodle to drink!"

    This thread disturbs me.

    I don't know where you whiny bitches come from, but here, soup is both.

    What about broth?

    EDIT: Extra-cold Macdonalds milkshakes are definitely classed as food

    Gruel? Liquid aminos?

    I dunno. Take food, add enough water and blend until liquidy, strain out the will to live and eat a basket of hot chips instead.

    I've reached the point in the "evening" where I am considering drawing up plans to construct some sort of t-shirt-cannon-style device that fires cardboard containers of flaming hot soup, which are consumed by their recipients like this, so I'm going to bed now. Seeya, soupmeisters! May our passion for irrelevant nitpicking never die.
