Origin of guzzle

  • Origin unknown

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • Attested since 1576. Possibly imitative of the sound of drinking greedily, or from Old French gouziller, gosillier (“to pass through the throat”), from gosier (“throat”), and akin to Italian gozzo (“throat; a bird's crop”).
