Drinking Alcohol

Standard Drinks Are Different
From Bottles And Cans  

 

When you’re doing the pouring, it helps to know the number of standard drinks in different bottles and cans:

Regular Beer

12 fluid ounces = 1 drink

16 fluid ounces = 1⅓ drinks

22 fluid ounces = 2 drinks

40 fluid ounces = 3⅓ drinks

Malt Liquor Beverages

12 fluid ounces = 1½ drinks

16 fluid ounces = 2 drinks

22 fluid ounces = 2½ drinks

40 fluid ounces = 4½ drinks

Wine (Red, White, Champagne)

750 ml (standard size bottle) = 5 drinks

80-Proof Spirits/Hard Liquor

750 ml (a “fifth”/standard bottle) = 17 drinks
