Partitif article followed by propername
I have the following sentence
Il biot ------ Coca-cola tous les jours.
Here i need to fill it using partitif article, because Coca-cola is a propername i have to use Il boit de Coca-cola tous les jours?
Is this correct. Please correct me if i am wrong.
This question relates to:French lesson "Du, de la, de l', des all become de or d' in negative sentences (partitive articles)"

The answer would be 'Il boit du Coca-cola tous les jours'.
It would be the same for any beverage, e.g.
Il boit du lait, du vin, du champagne, de la bière, du Pineau des Charentes tous les jours...
Hope this helps!

Indeed Chris, "On boit de la bière , de la limonade et de la Vodka..."
Have been racking my brain to think of any other beverages which are feminine but these are the only ones I could muster...
Please feel free to add to the list ...
Sivavathana's comment is valid though as most are masculine which is something that a native speaker wouldn't necessarily appreciate as useful to a learner.

Tisane is feminine, also eau and champagne.

Champagne is masculine -
On boit du champagne....
Sorry, you're right about champagne. I guess it just feels feminine to me.
Absinthe also is feminine.
