I don"t believe this distinction is widely recognized by native speakers.

"I"ll have an orange juice" would be perfectly acceptable in your coffee siêu thị scenario as as when visiting a friend.

Dropping the "an" helps a little, but probably more common would be just "orange juice, please" or "could I have an orange juice?" chia sẻ Improve this answer Follow answered Sep 11 "13 at 11:06
