We have heard alcoholic drinks referred to as "spirits." This apparently became a term used, because of Aristotle. According to VinePair.com, Aristotle coined the term "spirits" for the distillation process. He felt that the alcohol put spirit into the body of the person who drinks it. Depending on how you decide to interpret that, you could be thinking, "I don't want a ghost in me!" Oh goodness now. "Spirit" could be referring to just a move lively aspect of your countenance. But sometimes, when we imbibe too much, we might think like someone else has taken over our body!
