What Constitutes a drink?

 

 One drink is defined as: 
  • One 12-ounce bottle of beer or wine cooler, or
  • One 5-ounce glass of wine, or
  • 1.5 ounce of 80-proof distilled liquor
 

Your body weight and the time spent consuming the alcohol affects its absorption into your body and, consequently, your BAC.
