    If you are confused with which word to use I would rewrite the sentence in a different way that does not need the word.

    "He raised the glass to his lips and drank the water." Any mention  of 'sat' or 'set' is wrong. After drinking the water he 'set the glass back on the table'.  

    Just possibly: "He put the glass to his lips, and...."

    When you 'set' something somewhere you expect it to remain there for a good while without needing further support. Nobody except an expert juggler could 'set a glass on his lips' and expect it not to fall off!

    generally, neither.  he raised the glass to his lips would make better sense

    'Set' is the correct word.

    I would use "set."  "Sat" is past tense for "sit," and a glass does not sit.
