Alcohol Content & BAC

In general, a 160 pound person who drinks for an hour on an empty stomach may have the following blood alcohol levels:image

2 drinks = 0.04 % BAC
3 drinks = 0.07 % BAC
5 drinks = 0.11 % BAC
7 drinks = 0.16 % BAC

However, you must keep in mind that a double is considered at least two drinks in one. A long island ice tea contains two or more shots of alcohol, so it is also considered at least two drinks in one.

Bottom line: The amount of alcohol in each drink must be taken into account when estimating the BAC.
