What Is a Standard Drink?

With summer parties and barbecues in full swing, people may find it challenging to drink responsibly.

  • A standard 16 oz. plastic drinking cup can help you measure a “standard drink.” The lines on the cup show you how much to pour of beer, wine or liquor without overdoing it.
  • Be aware that the drink you order at the bar could be equal to two or three “standard drinks.” It depends on the type and amount of alcohol in the drink.

And remember, nothing can lower blood alcohol content (BAC) except time.
