Is there a reason the present progressive "I am drinking in the kitchen" isn't accepted?

Aloha e @LaliJ , ʻae, the reason is that it is a different tense form; if you wanted to express that ma ka ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi, then you would say "E inu ana au ma ka lumi kuke." "I am drinking in the kitchen."

Hope this helps you a bit.
