Yes, sugar is soluable in alcohol. I am assuming you mean drinking alcohol although it is soluable in all organic alcohols. The hyrdoxy (-OH) groups on both the sugar and the alcohol allow for hydrogen bonding, making sugar very soluable in alcohol. Hydrogen bonds are also the reason sugar is so soluable in water.
