How do we measure the amount of alcohol?
What is a unit of alcohol

 What is a "standard unit of alcohol?"
Alcoholic beverages are served in different sizes of glasses, bottles etc. Each drink contains different amounts of alcohol

What we need to know is the amount of alcohol we take whenhaving a drink and not the quantity of liquid we drink.

Alcohol is measured in units.

The measurement depends on the concentration of alcohol in a drink and the quantity consumed.   

1 unit of alcohol is equal to 10 ml of pure alcohol.

There are no light drinks or heavy drinks. One alcohol unit is contained in half a pint of beer, a single measure of whiskey, vodka, rum or ouzo, or a small glass of wine.
