    Default Drink, Drank . . . Drunk?

    Can the word "drunk" be used as past tense of "to drink"? Can you use it as in, "She had drunk a glass of water."?

    Your example sentence was in past perfect tense, so the past participle is fine.

    If you used it in a past tense sentence like this:

    She drunk a glass of wine.

    Then I would say it was bad English.
