Standard drink

From A Storehouse of Knowledge
Jump to: navigation, search

A standard drink is a fixed amount of absolute alcohol, defined typically by a national government, and meant to allow a consistent definition of moderate drinking for all beverages, regardless of alcohol content. Unfortunately, different countries have different sized standard drinks, and also have different definitions of moderate drinking, even after taking this difference in definition into account. In the United States, a standard drink is defined as 0.6 US customary fluid ounces of absolute alcohol.
