I thought that "nước" was "water". What's with the "uống" after it?

We could also say nước suối, right?

nước uống and nước suối are the same, right?

Nước suối = spring water.

When you drink nước suối in Vietnamese, make sure it come from a bottle and not from a spring in the back :-)

Also, nước uống does not necessarily mean water.

uống = drink
nước uống = any consumable liquid
