Standard Size Drinks

Standard size drinks are what help determine your BAC. If it takes you 2 drinks to have a BAC at .05, do we mean 2 red cups full of jungle juice? No - standard size drinks, are exactly that, they standardize the serving size of alcohol so you can compare across drinks.

Having these standard size drinks makes it easy to compare your consumption of alcohol. These make a Bud Light the same as a shot of Jack Daniels.

  • 12 oz of Domestic Beer- 4% Alcohol-Bud Light, Coors, Miller
  • 10 oz of Microbrew- 6% Alcohol-Fat Tire, Altitude, The Library, Breckenridge

  • 8 oz of Malt Liquor- 8% Alcohol-Old E, Mickey's, Side Pocket
  • 4 oz of Table Wine- 10-14% Alcohol-Yellow Tail, Woodbridge
  • 2.5 oz of fortified wine- 14+% Alcohol- Boons, Mad Dog 20/20
  • 1.25 oz of 80 proof alcohol- 40% Alcohol- Jim, Jack, Jose, Captain
  • 1.0 oz of 100 proof alcohol- 50% Alcohol-Southern Comfort
  • ¾ oz of 150 proof alcohol- 75% Alcohol-151 Train
  • ½ oz of 190 proof Alcohol- 95% Alcohol-Everclear


FACTS ABOUT YOUR FAVORITE DRINK

  •  Jungle juice can have between 5 to 10 servings of alcohol in one red cup.
  •  Although a standard size drink of malt liquor is 8 oz, it is usually served in a 40 oz container. One container has 5 standard servings of alcohol.
  •  Despite a standard size of a Microbrew being 10 oz, it is still bottled in 12 oz containers.
  • The average Microbrew contains 6% alcohol. However, this is only an average. Some microbrews, especially seasonal can have much a much higher alcohol content, possibly closer to a glass of wine.
