    Quetion about proof strength vs consumption

    I was wondering. let say it takes 4-2oz drinks of 80 proof to reach .01 blood alchol. lets then take 8oz x 80 and this give you 640 points. Now my question is would you reach this same blood alchol level with say 5 oz of 126 Proof Bookers. 640 divided by126 equals 5. Is there any truth to this. Thanks Creggor.

    Re: Quetion about proof strength vs consumption

    The translation of drinks consumed into a blood alcohol reading is a matter of individual metabolism, body size, what else is in your stomach, etc.

    By the way, a "drink" is one 12-oz. beer, or one 6-oz. glass of wine, or one 1.25-oz. drink of 80 proof spirits.

    What matters in terms of intoxication is the amount of absolute alcohol.
