Best Answer

One 12 ounce beer with 5% alcohol equals one drink. Standard beers are 5% alcohol, but some are higher. Always take a glance to see what the alcohol content is. A 16 ounce Solo cup full of beer equals one and a third drinks.

Other drink equivalents:

  • 4 oz wine (10-12% alcohol) equals one drink
  • 1/2 shot of Bacardi 151 rum equals one drink
  • Shots poured to the first indent of a 16 ounce Solo cup can equal between 3 to 4 drinks
  • 1.25 ounces of brandy equals one drink
  • 1.25 ounces of 40% alcohol liquors equals one drink
  • 7 ounces of malt equals one drink
  • 10 ounces of a wine cooler equals one drink
  • Long Island iced tea can equal 5 drinks (seeing they contain about 5 shots)

The standard shot glass is 1.5 ounces.
