If you try to find every instance that Drake references a particular drink in song, you will end up feeling very hungover. As it stands, this writer’s eyes are currently bloodshot as hell, and this list isn’t even exhaustive; for the purposes of not dying or wanting to kill Drake, this post only covers tracks from his full EPs and albums, with exceptions for Views from the 6 teasers. This post does not cover his feature verses or 2006’s Room For Improvement. We’re starting with Comeback Season (2007) and ending with the songs released between If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late and Views. We included non-alcoholic beverages, because why not? If we missed something, it is because we got too faded. You can take that up with Drizzy.

To start off, I’d like to make some brief observations. First, Drake talked a lot more about specific Drinks at the beginning of his career. On IYRTITL, he only makes two specific references two specific drinks in his verses. Second, Drake talks about drinking in general a fucking lot, but, he doesn’t reference as many particular beverages as I thought he would. Third, Drake loves shots. Fourth, Drake does talk about lean a lot, and I don’t totally buy it from him, but whatever. Artistic license is tight.

Finally, here are some noteworthy Drake drinks, by the numbers: two double-pump lattes, five mentions of wine, nine mentions of champagne, four mentions of water, six mentions of specific or critical-to-the-song-theme shots, five mentions of Patron, one mention of whiskey, four mentions of Sprite, two Coronas, a lot of rosé, and four mentions of Hennessy. We’ve included some non-specific mentions of bottles and shots, because they are fun.

Again, this only includes a few of his albums and singles, so no, this isn’t exactly an exhaustive list of Drake Drinks. But still, it’s a lot. Take a shot for me. Or get a plastic bag and pick up all the cash. I wrote all night, I deserve it.
