This one is strange. "Inu", as I was taught, is the verb "to drink." The word for beverage is "mea inu", which is roughly "things to drink."

From your and Lee's earlier comments, I entered "ka mea inu" for "the drink" and DL marked it wrong. My trusty dictionary defines drink this way: verb inu, inumia, pā. Noun mea inu. Ka inu for The drink should be reported. Edit: As of 12/13/18, He mea inu kēia is accepted.
