Vinegar is soured alcohol. Its name comes from the Old French vinaigre, meaning sour wine, but it can be applied to any soured alcohol. The use of vinegar for liquids that are not wine-based is a later sense of the word, so in early recipes it is more likely to mean wine vinegar. Vinegar is formed when acetic acid bacteria get into the alcohol and start to create acetic acid.
