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 of distilled spirits contains about 25 1-ounce shots. A quart contains about 32 shots, and a liter contains about 33 shots.
