A protein-polysaccharide macromolecular complex article of manufacture containing encapsulated ethyl alcohol and/or other spirits serving as an entertaining and novel non-beverage method of consuming alcohol. The article of manufacture encapsulates ethyl alcohol and/or other spirits in the amorphous regions of the complex macromolecular structure releasing it only upon chewing and exposure to the environment of the oral cavity. The article of manufacture is stable and capable of retaining shape and form for extended periods of time at ambient temperature allowing for relatively low-cost commercial manufacture and distribution.
