Ethanol clearance: There is wide variation in the metabolism of ethanol. The unhabituated drinker clears ethanol from the blood stream at an approximate rate of 15 to 20 mg/dL per hour. Patients with chronic ethanol abuse can clear ethanol at a rate of 25 to 35 mg/dL per hour, or even faster in some cases. Euphoria and mild deficits in coordination, attention, and cognition are seen w/ BAC of 100 mg/dL. ...Read more

About one drink/hour: The liver actually gets "revved up" the more you drink, and heavier drinkers can metabolize more alcohol, but the alcohol ultimately causes damage. Once that damage is severe, the liver can actually metabolize less alcohol. One drink per hour is about the rate we metabolize, if by one drink we mean a shot (1.5 oz) of 40 percent spirits, 12 oz 6% beer or 5 oz 10% wine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
