Liqueurs often have a lot of sugar in them (schnapps etc), but spirits, wine and beer have nearly none. Maybe you're thinking of carbs?

Carbs convert to sugar. I was taking a lexical shortcut. Sorry about that!

Consumption of ethanol lowers blood sugar though - does not increase it.

Yes but ethanol gets metabolized into sugar.

False. Lots of bad info on this thread, so don't feel like I'm singling you out.
