    What will you have?

    Hello, which idiom is correct, more natural if I want to ask someone what (drink) he will drink/have?

    1) What will you have?
    2) What will you drink? (I found this odd)

    Thanks.

    "What will you have (to drink)?" is good.

    What would you like (to drink)? sounds the most natural to me.
    In some places, you'll hear What'll it be?

    Or even - informally - assuming alcohol is on offer, 'What's your poison?'
