Alcohol CAN freeze. The kind of alcohol that people can drink is called ethanol and it has a freezing point of -114 degrees Celsius (-114 C or -173 degrees Fahrenheit); water freezes at 0Celsius (32F). There are many other kinds of alcohol (such as methanol, rubbing alcohol or isopropanol, butanol, and many others) and each one has a different freezing point. The coldest most home model freezers will go down to -18 Celsius (-.39 degrees Fahrenheit). That is why alcohol won't freeze in your home freezer.
