Asking Honestly?: For health the best answer is that one should not drink their calories. You are asking about common drinks that are full of sugars. There is rapidly gathering evidence that adults and milk do not go well together. If you have any weight or sugar problem yet this is highly important information to understand.

Part of a good start: In general, foods are in their healthiest form with a minimum of processing. So an orange provides a better ratio of fiber and vitamins to sugar than orange juice. But orange juice is often fortified with calcium and vitamin d. For people with diabetes or who have trouble with low sugar spells, it needs to be balanced with some protein.
