Soup is a food. You can (verb) drink the liquid but it is not a (noun) drink. If you're thirsty you're not going to drink soup. While eating soup, you drink something else along with it. Soup has too much sodium and protein to be a drink.

As many has said, it's not a drink. Just because something is a liquid or has a liquid-like form doesn't make it a drink. Like gravy; gravy is definitely not a drink, but it's still a... umm... "Thiquid"? XD

sure, you drink it, so it's a drink.

the more important question you should be asking yourself is, are all drinks beverages?
This is technically correct.

Soup may be a liquid, but isn't a beverage, considering that for many soups, you use utensils to consume them and slurp the broth or stock.

if you're a maniac yes
Nah, it's just easily slurpable. The only reason people don't is because gravy is eaten on other stuff and not by itself. Much like soup broth is eaten with the stuff in the soup. :)

That's not technically correct because of that. Beverages are just any drinks that aren't water. So if you're saying soup is a drink then you are saying it is a beverage.

Technically you could do that with water. You could also drink soup from a cup. Only problem is that either of those would get you weird looks. So can social norms keep something from being classified as what it teeechnically is?

Well we have Cup a Soup here which you do just that with.

Traditional brown gravy is much more slurpable than American white gravy.
How is American white gravy made?
