I would encourage him with an activity that replaces the stimulation he is getting from the spitting, something he could do with his mouth, such as blowing bubbles or playing a Kazoo. Tell him he can only do these things if he doesn't spit. You could also use a special cup or straws as an incentive. No big fuss, you just remove them if he spits and remind him of the rule. Praise him if he finishes a drink without spitting. He may also have a fascination with fluid itself, in which case a water table, or simple dishpan with water and toys may satisfy him for this stimulation. Whatever you do, do not give him attention for spitting, even negative attention such as yelling because that will reinforce the behavior.

I would have him drink only at the table. If he spitted his drink out I would take his drink away and tell him that if he spits his drink out of his mouth you will take his cup away. Follow through when he does not spit tell him how happy and proud you are that he did not spit.
