There are three words Liquor, Alcohol and Intoxicant. Which word can be used in general for any alcoholic drink? That is, if I say, 'wine' does it present any drink or is it a particular drink?

Liquor usually refers to "hard" alcohol, that which has been distilled.
Wine is a particular drink, usually made from fermented grapes.
Alcohol and intoxicant are general words, and although people do say "let's have some alcohol" or "let's get intoxicated" it is more usual to say
Let's go for a drink.
with the alcohol being understood.
There are also many synonyms and slang terms such as booze, snifter which can easily be found with a thesaurus.
