Alcohol itself isn't, but say, a mixed drink. That would be a solution, right?

I'm taking high school Chemistry now so I could be horribly wrong.

What we call "Alcohol" is not pure, 100%, ethanol. If it was, it would kill you. So, it is a mixture, or "solution" of mostly water, ethanol, sugar, and other organic compounds that give color and taste. Even a "pure" bottle of rum is a solution. The only thing close to alcohol that is not a solution is 200 proof alcohol, or laboratory grade stuff.

except alchohol in its pure form is a compound, not a solution. It could be known as the solvent if you were making a tincture.
