Very well written. Welcome to the "grammar" category! Is English your native tongue? - 0074b507, ENE 12, 2010

Refresco or gaseosa are very common terms.

You may also hear the word chesco used in Mexican Spanish for refresco.

I agree with this post; the above options are the most common! Other words you may hear: "refresco de soda", "aqua gaseosa" I have even heard plain "soda", etc. - jphip, ABR 25, 2014

bebida sin alcohol, gaseosa, trago pavo.

But always remember: more context, better answers.

I think a persons profile should tell us their nationality but very often they don't.

At the very least your profile should allow you to specify your native language. - rodneyp, ABR 25, 2014

Wikipedia has a nice table of what word you use in many of the Spanish speaking countries.


This for instance is the entry for Mexico:

México Refresco, a veces chesco o soda, y en el norte simplemente se le llama soda /o por su marca

And as Rodney notes, chesco is a term used in Mexico.

Also you can name Soft Drink as "bebida espirituosa" if it has bubbles
