Oceans of Alcohol

We know, what a very odd party type title to one of our thoughts? Actually we were talking about the English tradition of raising a glass at someones birthday and giving a little toast to wish them a happy one.

Lamo then from no where wondered the following, no he was not under the influence of alcohol at the time, just the crazy way we think.

Is it possible that there is a Planet out there in the Universe where somehow the oceans have plants that produce sugars. Perhaps other ingredients required and the water is warmed at its surface enough that these can ferment to form alcohol? Over millions of years could this ocean become alcoholic?

It might not be conducive to producing life, well if it did that life may develop liver issues very early on, or evolution might give it one hell of an efficient one to deal with the alcohol in the water!

Does make you wonder though what sort of different things might be happening on other worlds to our own. Although this is more in jest as we talk about it, if it did happen and life was born from such oceans, what it would evolve to be?
