When a British or American says " do not drink too much" or "no drinking after mid-night"
What sort of drinkable liquid do the words "drink" and " drinking" usually refer to, alcolol, juice, water etc., or both?
I'm glad you included 'usually' in your question. Occasionally, they could refer to all of them. A doctor or nurse might be telling you to avoid drinking anything at all for a certain number of hours before a fasting blood test, for example.
