Most people think the word "alcohol" is the same as "liquor" but this is not the case. In fact, people use them interchangeably because they think these words mean the same thing. However, alcohol and liquor are far from being the same. Alcohol is a chemical term that describes an organic compound. It contains a hydroxyl functional group. An example of this is ethanol. Alcohol is a clear liquid at room temperature.

Most people think the word
It is not as dense in nature. Alcohol dissolves easily in water. It is also highly flammable. It is dangerous to consume alcohol in its raw form as it is highly toxic to the human body. Liquor, on the other hand refers to distilled alcoholic beverage. Liquor is made by the process of distilling fermented grain. The term ‘liquor’ comes from the Latin term ‘liquere’ which means ‘to be fluid.’ Hope you find this useful.
