Drink Alcohol Only in Moderation 


The Basics

If you choose to drink, have only a limited (or moderate) amount. This means:

  • No more than 1 drink a day for women
  • No more than 2 drinks a day for men

One drink is a:

  • Bottle of beer (12 ounces)
  • Glass of wine (5 ounces)
  • Shot of liquor (1.5 ounces)

For most adults, moderate drinking doesn’t cause any serious health problems.
