It's quite possible to drink water, even large amounts of water when you're very thirsty (like working outside in the heat, not walking 20 feet in a climate controlled office) without a symphony of slurping, glugging, gulping, and lip smacking loud enough to be heard by others. The OP can't tell someone not to drink water, but she can ask that it be done a bit more quietly. It's really just basic manners, like closing your mouth when you chew.
Completely agree. Heck, I've guzzled down water quietly after a heavy workout. Quite frankly Liz sounds very over the top if she's making that much noise just walking 20 feet.
Personally, I'd say in a pleasant tone of voice. "Liz, can you please drink that a little more quietly."
