Do You Know What a Standard Drink Looks Like

Most people don't actually know what a standard drink is or how it is measured.

It is difficult to tell how much alcohol you are drinking because different types of alcoholic drinks contain different amounts of pure alcohol.

It is important to remember that alcohol is not always served as a standard drink. Pre-mixed spirits and free poured drinks often contain more than one standard drink.

Use the calculator to count how many standard drinks you had when you last drank alcohol.
