Definition: drink heartily

Sentence example: Many years ago, colonists defied the crown and ruined the private property of English merchants by dumping 342 chests of perfectly good tea into Boston harbour. This illegal act, known as the Boston Tea Party, was part of a small rebellion that eventually led to independence. Americans boycotted tea and developed a taste for coffee. Americans now quaff three times more coffee than tea.

The Power Memory Strategy:

  • Quaff sounds like someone drinking in big gulps.
