Take another look at the sentence:
Maria __________ from the cold glass of soda, trying to extinguish the anger that, lava-like, threatened to explode at her husband Darren, who had spent the day watching college football instead of mowing the lawn.
The sentence requires the past tense of drink, an irregular verb. Drank is the simple past form.
