What’s in a drink?

Some drinks might taste stronger than others (we are looking at you, tequila) but SURPRISE, when standardized they actually all have the exact same alcohol content.

It’s Science

  • Spirits: 43 ml (1.5 oz.) of 40% alcohol is a “standard drink”. It contains 17 ml of pure alcohol that your body has to deal with.
  • Wine: 142 ml (5 oz.) 12% wine is also a “standard drink”. It also contains 17 ml of pure alcohol – the same amount that affects you!
  • Beer: 341 ml (12 oz.) 5% beer is a “standard drink” too. You guessed it, it contains 17 ml of alcohol, as much as in spirits or wine.
