Translation:We are not going to drink this thing!
I know you are trying to teach me εκείνος, -η, -ο vs. αυτός, -η, -ο (and I don't want you to change anything) but at some point I am going to go nuts with this constant You used the wrong word. Everyone also uses αυτό for stuff that is far away and that for stuff that is close by! Aaaaaaaaaaaaargh!!!!
:-D (Don't pay attention. Just flippin' a little.)
You have every right to. We are now trying to get that "αυτό vs εκείνό issue under control. Sorry. And I've added "that" here.
So sorry, don't worry about me, just do whatever you think is right or useful for those learning Greek from scratch... I was just brain-fried when I wrote my comment and I was getting (even more) sloppy (than usual).
Once again, the hints for προκειται are not helpful, because they imply person and number. Maybe "to be going to" I'm not meaning to nitpick, but I see there are 5 comments but I only get to see 3. What's going on there? Are you counting the up-and-down arrows?
Πρόκειται is impersonal. You get your clues from the verb that follows: να πιούμε. ;)

The comment counter is broken (and has been for a while now). I only see 1 for this discussion, for example.
I cannot understand the issue with the number of comments. I see that there are 7 comments. Five referring to the use of "αυτό" or "εκέινο" all posted a year ago. One by "robert" and one by "D_ " and now, of course, my comment makes it 8. Why they are not visible I cannot explain short of that it's a computer glitch which will be reported.
The arrows show the feelings of other learners to the comments. What does the question about counting them mean? Btw there were only two on the comments referring to αυτό και εκείνο.
I agree with the comment by D_ concerning the use of "πρόκειται να" as impersonal. Προκειται can mean "about" but "προκειται να" translates as "going to do something" showing future intent of the verb that follows.'
Why they are not visible I cannot explain
The comments themselves are visible when you load the discussion. It's the comment counter on the discussions page that is broken and gives wrong information.
