The ABCs of BAC Part 2

Q: Does the type of alcohol I drink
affect my BAC?

A: No. A drink is a drink, is a drink.

A typical drink equals about half
an ounce of alcohol (.54 ounces, to be exact). This is the approximate amount of
alcohol found in:

  • one shot of distilled spirits, or

  • one 5-ounce glass of wine, or

  • one 12-ounce beer.
