Hi Every body

1. Joan drank a great deal of sodas.

My question is "a great deal of" must be used for non-countable nouns.
But here it was used for countable noun.Could you provide your view on how this usage is correct.

I am very dubious of the source of this sentence as the term "sodas" is a bad example to use IMO.
My understanding is that this sentence implies that Joan drank sodas in the liquid form, which is not countable.

1. Joan drank a great deal of sodas (soda water) or Joan drank many cans of sodas.

There is a discussion for the same doubt here: gmat-club-grammar-book-doubt-120402.html
Seems like the source is GMAT Club grammar book.
