No.

In a list, the final und or oder is never preceded by a comma.

I used drinks instead of beverages. Why is this wrong?

"Beer, coffee, and wine are drinks." is an accepted translation.

If that is what you wrote and it was rejected, I don't know what might have happened. A screenshot would be helpful.
