Either could be grammatically correct, but the more common tense would be 'I drank milk today'. The present tense (drink) doesn't work well in this case.

I can't imagine any kind of scheduled milk-drinking context in which the use of the Simple Present (for future scheduled meaning) could ever make sense.
