Weekend Sip Tip


Size Matters! Even though you may know (or think you know) the standard serving sizes for beer, wine, and liquor, do you know how much you're actually pouring? Standard red Solo cups hold 18oz of liquid. A standard serving of beer is 12oz, wine is 5oz, and 80-proof liquor is 1.5oz. If filling your cup to the brim from a keg, you are actually consuming a drink and a half with each refill. When you aren't aware of your pour, you can lose track of how much you consume. Overconsumption can lead to bad nights and rough mornings. If you choose to drink, take note of how much you pour and while you're at it, Stop@Buzzed
