para tomar

I'm a brand new spanish student. In the lesson about food and drink, why does "para" need to be before "tomar" if tomar means "to drink"? Wouldn't "para tomar" then mean "to to drink?"

Well depending on message of the sentence "para" could mean "in order to" and "tomar" means "to take" (often used to refer to taking a drink). So "para tomar" literally would than translate as "in order to take(a drink)". So you than see how it works out. Hope that helped a bit
