Here's what the Encyclopaedia Galactia has to say about alcohol. It says that alcohol is a colourless volatile liquid formed by fermentation of sugars and also notes its intoxicating effect on certan carbon-based life forms.
The Hitch Hicker's Guide to the Galaxy also mentions alcohol. It says that the best drink in existence is the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster.
It says the effect of drinking a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster is like having your brians smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick.
The guide also tells you on which planets the best Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters are mixed, and how much you can expect to pay for one and what voluntary organizations exist to help you rehabilitate afterwards.
The guide also tells you how you can mix one yourself.
Take the juice from one bottle of the Ol' Janx Spirit, it says.
Pour into one measure of water from the seas of Santraginus V - Oh that Santraginus sea water, is says. Oh thoes Santraginus fish!!!
Allow three cubes of Arcturan Mega-gin to melt into the mixture (it must be properly iced or the benzine is lost).
Allow four liters of Fallian marsh gas to bubble through it, in memory of all thoes happy Hickers who have died of pleasure in the Marshes of Fallia.
Over the back of a silver spoon float a measure of Qualactin Hyperminit extract, redolent of all the heavy odours of the dark Qualactin Zones, subtle sweet and mystic.
Drop in a tooth of an Algolian Suntiger. Watch is dissolve, spreading fires of the Algolian Suns deep into the heart of the drink.
Add an olive.
Drink... but... verry carefully...
The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy sells rather better then the Encyclopaedia Galactica.
