Alcoholic beverages are drinks that contain alcohol. They are drunk in many parts of the world and are among the oldest and most widely consumed beverages in the world. Alcoholic beverages include beer, wine, spirits such as whiskey, vodka and rum, and cocktails mixed from various alcoholic beverages.
Alcohol is produced by a fermentation process in which sugar is converted into alcohol and carbon dioxide by yeast or other bacteria. The alcohol content of beverages is expressed in percent by volume (ABV) and indicates how much of the beverage is alcohol.
Although alcoholic beverages are an integral part of society in many cultures and are often drunk on social occasions, there are also risks associated with alcohol consumption. Excessive alcohol consumption can lead to health problems such as liver disease, cardiovascular disease and cancer. It is therefore important to realize that alcohol should be enjoyed in moderation and that it is important to take care of your own health and the health of others.
