    Cost of Drinking Calculator

    Drinking can be an expensive habit. You may not notice a dollar here or two dollars there, but think about how much you spend on alcohol each week. It can add up.

    One drink is one 12-ounce bottle or can of beer or wine cooler; one 5-ounce glass of wine; or 1.5 ounces of 80-proof distilled spirits. The amount of alcohol in any size drink will vary based on the amount of alcohol in the drink. For example, the amount of alcohol in a 12-ounce beer can vary from 4% to 6% or more.

    A 750 ml bottle of wine contains about 5 5-ounce glasses. A liter bottle contains about 6 glasses.

    A fifth (1/5 of a gallon) of distilled spirits contains almost 17 1.5-ounce shots.
