  1. “I am drinking coffee right now” is correct, because “right now” usually means “at the present moment”, and this matches the present continuous tense of “I am drinking”. If your boss says “Have you done that report for me yet?” you could say “I’m working on it right now. It will be finished in a few minutes.”
    Most people would say that “I will drink coffee right now” is also correct. In this case, “right now” means “immediately”. If your boss says “Have you done that report for me yet?” you could say “No, I’ll do it right now.” A mother might say to a naughty child “Stop it right now!”
    I disagree with those who say “I drank coffee right now” is correct. It is incorrect. You can’t use “right now” to describe a time in the past, even if it is only just in the past. To describe that, we would say “I drank coffee just now.”

  2. “I am drinking coffee right now.” is grammatically correct.
    because the present adverbial phrase “right now” agrees neither with past tense nor future tense, but it agrees with the present tense.

  3. All three are correct. I’m explaining why!
    1st: it means I am still drinking it. It means there is still some or lots of coffee left in the cup.
    2nd: it means your saying to some1, that you’ll drink coffee after few minutes.
    3rd: it means you have just finished drinking your coffee.
    So, all three are correct depending upon what you want to convey!
