Alcoholic Drinks

Alcoholic beverages are drinks that contain the chemical compound of ethyl alcohol (chemical formula of C2H5OH) or ethanol, a colorless and flammable liquid. Alcohol is found in any fermented liquor, and it is the ingredient that produces intoxication.

Alcohol consumed in small amounts functions as a stimulant; however, it is classified as a depressant or a drug that slows down the brain. It is also classified as a psychoactive substance in that it can alter mood and consciousness, leading to intoxication. Alcoholic beverages, like all psychoactive substances, affect brain functions. Higher brain functions such as the ability to reason, problem-solve and control social inhibitions are affected first. If the person keeps drinking, he or she will become less alert, sleepy and lose muscular coordination. Signs of alcoholic intoxication are slurred or rambling speech, difficulty remembering, staggering or unsteady walk, inability to drive or perform other mechanical tasks, lack of coordination and personality changes. Some people become belligerent and argumentative, others become overly friendly and silly when intoxicated. People can die from alcohol poisoning, which is the consumption of too many drinks too quickly.

Intoxication or drunkenness has a legal definition in most states that is based on the level of alcohol in the bloodstream, usually 0.08%. In some countries, that standard is as low as 0.02%.

Alcoholic beverages are made by allowing the sugars in grains, fruits, honey and others to undergo fermentation or decomposition. There are  three basic kinds of alcoholic beverages: wine, beer and hard liquor.
