Which of these drinks contains the most alcohol?


A 12-ounce can of 5% beer, a 5-ounce glass of 12% wine, or a 1.5-ounce shot of 80-proof liquor all contain the same amount of alcohol. An average 180-pound man will reach a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.04% after drinking any two such drinks before his body starts to break down the alcohol (at a rate of 0.01% every 40 minutes). It is illegal for a CDL holder to drive with a BAC of 0.04% or above.
