Alcohol, also known as booze or hooch, was a substance that had mind-altering effects on certain organic species. Various type of beverages consumed by sentients such as ales, liquors, and wines contained alcohol.
Types of alcohol
Alcoholic drinks could be divided into several categories: wines were made by fermenting fruit or other vegetation with a rising agent, meads were made by fermenting biological sugars, beers were brewed from grains, and liquors were made from various pressed, fermented, and blended ingredients.
Excessive alcohol consumption caused temporary intoxication (or "drunkenness"), typically followed by unpleasant aftereffects. One danger of intoxication was impaired judgement: While gambling in the Canto Casino, the alien Dobbu Scay became inebriated and mistook the astromech droid BB-8 as a slot machine. The droid ended up accumulating many of Scay's Cantocoins. During a mission to the Coruscant underworld, Jedi Ahsoka Tano and Plo Koon went into a cantina to find information on bounty hunter Aurra Sing, due to people being more likely to reveal information while intoxicated. Although tolerance for alcohol varied between individuals, it was possible to train one's body to strengthen its resistance.
