Better way to use ‘take’ and ‘took’

When before sleeping if one ask me how much you drink water today. How can I respond him in better way or which one is right one?

I took 5 glass of water.


I take 5 glass of water today.

Because somehow I am using past sentence because I am going to sleep and right now am not drinking water.


ARG, good question. We actually don’t use take at all for liquids. We would only use the verb drink.

I drank five glasses of water today.

Similarly, we use only use the verb eat for food.

I ate five cupcakes.

But we can use the verb take for medicine.

I took five aspirin today.
