In brief: None - same thing

Ethanol, or ethyl alcohol, is the chemical name for "beverage alcohol," to distinguish it from other alcohols, like wood alcohol (methanol or methyl alcohol) and rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol).
There is a slight difference between the blood alcohol level and the serum alcohol level (about 10%), but they are almost the same thing too.
