In brief: One ounce/one hour
Alcohol is usually metabolized (removed from your body) at about an ouce an hour. An ounce is the amount of alcohol in one 12 oz beer, one 4 oz glass of wine or one shot of liquor (approx.
). Women metabolize it a bit more slowly than men. Drinking slowly and eating can keep you from becoming intoxicated. It is rec. That women not drink more than one oz. Per day and men not more than 2 oz. Per day.
