I want to go on a date with him... just not for drinks. Do you think I should ask him to lunch/coffee? Or just let it go?

Your response was a typical "let him down easy" way of saying thanks, but no thanks I'm not interested. You should've just told him you don't like to drink and maybe get a coffee instead.

Ask him out!!! He thinks you rejected him so he's distancing himself. You asking him out will boost him back up. I would explain to him exactly what you said here and why you said "maybe another time", then follow that up with "what are you doing this Friday? Want to grab a bite?"
