Wouldn't concentrated sulphuric acid also absorb the remaining water, without mixing with the alcohol?

Could one freeze out the water? Probably wouldn't be cost-effective.

They now sell individual user machines for $299!!!
Much cheaper than the group machine for bars.
I prefer to drink my martinis, but would try out the AWOL.



The user chooses which alcoholic spirit will be used and the alcoholic spirit is loaded into a diffuser capsule in the machine. The oxygen bubbles are then passed through the capsule, absorbing the alcohol, before being inhaled through a tube. The resultant cloudy alcohol vapor is then inhaled from the end of the tube via a device that converts liquid to vapor.

Benzene just strips the water without changing the nature of the ethanol. Recall that mixing an acid and an alcohol generally produces an ester. Methyl sulphate would be the expected product in this instance.
