On average, your liver can process one normal drink per hour, depending on your metabolism. The following is an example of a regular drink: 5 ounces of a strong alcoholic beverage (rum, gin, vodka, whiskey, tequila) 12 ounces of your favorite normal beer Craft beer (about 8-9 ounces) 5 ounces of wine (red or white) for each person
Many individuals are concerned about how long alcohol will linger in their system after a long night of drinking, and this is a valid issue. It takes time for the body to digest alcohol once it has been consumed. In most cases, it takes around one hour to metabolize one normal beverage.
Is alcohol metabolism faster when you eat or drink?
It is true that someone who has eaten before drinking will have a slightly faster metabolism of alcohol, although this increase is extremely tiny. Heavy drinkers will have a faster metabolism of alcohol than light drinkers or non-drinkers. The rate of alcohol metabolism, on the other hand, decreases significantly in the presence of advanced liver disease.
