So, your friend has vaginal herpes, and you are wondering if you share a drink, if you have a chance of catching it.

I think that the friend who told you this is confusing oral herpes and vaginal herpes. The only way it can be transmitted is if a sore comes into contact with your face or genitals.

Vaginal herpes can absolutely be transmitted to a person's mouth in the form of oral herpes. This happens during oral sex or other activities.

However, if your friend does not have oral herpes, and you aren't coming into contact with her genitals the virus can not be transmitted.

Here's an article that will answer all of your questions and more.
The STI Files: Herpes

Hope this helped.
