Mensagem: 

    Beverage and drink (both nouns);  can be translated into 'bebida' (I think it is in this sense you want help?).

    Beverage would be more formal and in general are fermented or destiled, see under the entry 'beverage' at the Webster´s dictionary online. 

     Drink, in its turn, can be 'soft drink' or fermented/destiled, and it´s more used in the day-to-day conversation.

 

   Notice: I didn´t tried to cover the verb meaning of drink, etc. I tried to be the as concise  as possible.   Others problably will cover these senses.
