In brief: Depends on the drink
Standard drink has 14 gms pure alcohol so: beer (5% alcohol)-12 oz malt liq (7%)-8-9 oz wine (12%)-5 oz hard liquor/spirits (80 proof/40%)-1.
5 oz (jigger) mixed drinks can vary- depends how well you know the bartender, so be careful, especially if you plan on driving later.
