I am pretty sure your definition of bribery is the same as mine.

I don't know about that. In any case, I will just quote the definition that Google gave, which although containing a few subjective terms, seems pretty appropriate:

Quote
... persuade (someone) to act in one's favor, typically illegally or dishonestly, by a gift of money or other inducement.

Fulfilling God's commands on Earth will have the reward of heaven in the next life.

What we have been told about heaven, is that the desires of humans will be fulfilled there, some of those  features have been mentioned in the Islamic sources, but not everything has been explicitly defined.

If I remember correctly: rivers of milk, having the opportunity to listen to the voice  of Allah, palaces, if I'm not mistaken, the people getting served drinks by Allah Himself, people probably getting the opportunity to meet with their loved ones, or even the prophets.

So in return for worshipping Allah five times a day, Allah rewards people by serving them drinks in heaven.

First of all, it is much more than just 5 times a day prayers, and secondly what exactly is wrong with that? It is but one of many rewards.

Stop mincing words and speak plainly. Also, why didn't you include the fact about the opportunity to listen to Allah in heaven? Is it because you couldn't come up with any arguments against it?
