    I've just mixed a drink for my partner at home and was curious about how many units it is, as he will be driving early tomorrow morning.

    I had a 50ml bottle of Absolut vodka with lemon (40% ABV) and mixed it with lemonade to make it up to a pint. I think, using an online calculator, that it's 2 units, but I don't know if I've worked it out. Please help!

    The formula I used was (ABVxVol in ml)/1000. I used (40x50)/1000 to get 2. But I don't know if I should have used the volume of the spirit or the drink as a whole.
