How does alcohol percentage work ?? Confused beginnerWatch
Honestly, being able to do APV (alcohol percentage volume) sums, especially when drunk, is really useful. Everyone has a good level of how drunk is the right amount. On a full stomach, six beers will get me into the sweet spot so it's good to be able to work out what that is in spirits if I don't have beer
I want to drink a blossom hill drink which is a small bottle that is 187 ml which contains 12.5% alcohol volume so if I drink two of those small bottles does that mean I’ve drank 25% alcohol in total . I don’t know how this really works .
But their are all kinds of factors like tolerance, have you eaten that day, mixing of alcohol types, duration of drinking, body type that will all impact how drunk you get in addition to the amount of alcohol.
Alcohol units = volume in litres multiplied by percentage. So 25 ml of whisky at 40% alcohol is 1 unit exactly because 40 * 0.025 = 1.
So two of those drinks is 374 ml. At 12.5% alcohol then that's 0.374 * 12.5 ~= 4.7 units. 1 unit corresponds to 10 ml of ethanol.
