Any drink that is not purified water. All soft drinks, fruit juices, teas, coffees, Alcoholic Beverages have some form of acid in it or another. Citric acid is found in most fruit juices and phosphoric acid in most soft drinks. They are not caustic or harmful to us because of the concentration of it in the drink.
