The concept of "engulfing liquid particles" is pretty dated - pinocytosis (or, as it's also called now, podocytosis) is now understood to be a way of moving molecules through which have no carriers (or particles too small to resolve with a light microscope). Since the old researchers couldn't see these molecules in "empty" food vacuoles, they thought the cells were "drinking."
