Trivia: Why is soda considered a “soft drink”?
It contains sugar
It’s served cold
Correct Answer: It’s non-alcoholic
So why is this answer correct? : The term “soft drink” originally differentiated flavored, carbonated non-alcoholic drinks from hard liquor. Soft drinks were heavily marketed toward Americans and recommended as a substitute for alcohol. While soda is by far the most popular type of soft drink, there are other forms throughout the world. Mineral waters are popular in Europe and Latin America, and Kava (made from the roots of a shrub) is a favorite in the Pacific islands.
