Ignoring the jug of pumpkin juice in front of him, he reached again into his traveling cloak, pulled out a hip flask, and took a long draught from it. (GF12)

He could have sworn, too, that he felt something brush against his side, a gentle something like a draught or bird wings, but looking down he saw nothing there. (OP27)

Definition

U.S.: draft (both in the senses of “air current” and of “a quantity of something to be drunk”).
