Right from the beginning of time alcohol liquor has been around. People have been drinking alcohol whenever they need to celebrate as well as to steady their nerves since the Stone Age! The drinking of alcohol liquor is considered a social and celebratory event all over the world.
Alcohol liquor can be categorized as spirits, liqueurs, wine, beer and mixers. A close look at each of these can give you an idea as to what these drinks really are. Alcoholic drinks like spirits are produced and distilled from substances like grain such as wheat and rye and other ingredients like potatoes, corn, fruit juice, molasses, treacle and cane juice. These are either served alone or they are combined with “mixers” in mixed alcohol liquor.
Liqueurs are those spirits that are usually flavored with creams, nuts, fruits and flowers. They are sweet because of the sugar that is added to make sweetened alcohol liquor which is rich in flavor and aroma. Wines are sold in a variety of flavors and colors. Wine is produced from fermented grapes. For example, Vermouth is a dry wine that is generally used in a mixed drink that is flavored with herbs and spices that are aromatic. Champagne is considered a “sparkling wine”.
Beer is commonly sold in most liquor stores and is very popular. Beer is an alcoholic liquor that contains yeast and flavored with hops, a flowering plant. Beer can be classified into lagers and ales. Mixers are those substances that are used in drinks like coffee, juice, chocolate, water and syrups. Most mixers add flavor to the beverage but are low in alcohol content.
Plenty of top liquor brands are available at liquor stores. Some of the best alcohol liquor being sold and consumed by the masses are Scotch which is complex yet popular with many.
