Wouldn't 'det' be more preferrable?

Often, yes. But since it's ambiguous, be accept both den and det.

Thank you! Is how can you tell which words need 'ett' though?

Would Vatten be an Ett or an En word? (I know the oruginal question doesn't specify the boy's drink.)

Vatten är ett ett-ord (vatten, vattnet).

But if "den" would refer to water (an ett- word) in this sentence, should't it be: "Pojken dricker det"..?
