We all like a good time - but having one also comes down to a few good decisions. So if you’re looking for a few simple ways to keep your night on track, and make a good time better - you’ve come to the right place. Here’s to that!


WHAT’S A STANDARD DRINK?

A standard drink is the amount of alcohol the average person can process in one hour. You can’t speed this process up, and your body can only deal with one drink at a time.

So three standard drinks, will take three hours to process. And the more you get ahead of yourself, the more you will feel the effects. Making the right decisions, is a lot easier when you know how many drinks you’ve really had.

Can you pour a standard?

Drag the slider on the right of the image to fill the glass to where you think a standard drink is for this 37% bourbon.

Interesting isn’t it? It’s important to be able to recognise how much a standard drink is - 30mls for this bourbon.

Drag the slider on the right of the image to fill the glass to where you think a standard drink is for this 4% beer.

So, that’s what a standard drink of beer looks like in a glass. If you usually drink beer from a bottle you can check the label to see how many standards are inside. So, that’s what a standard drink of 330ml beer (4%) looks like in a glass.

Drag the slider on the right of the image to fill the glass to where you think a standard drink is for this 13% wine.

Wine is often poured in large glasses, which makes it really easy to over pour and unwittingly end up having more standard drinks than you planned. It’s good to know what 100mls actually looks like in a glass.
