    Re: adverse

    Your version is incorrect.

    Look up the difference between "adverse" and "averse".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    In addition to the correct version quoted above, you could say "I wouldn't mind having a drink," "I wouldn't mind a drink," "I'd love a drink," or many other things to express the idea.
