Different types of alcoholic drinks contain different amounts of pure alcohol. In fact, one serving is usually more than one 'standard drink'.

How many standard drinks is a 5% beer?

The general rule of thumb is that 2 standard drinks in the first hour will raise your BAC to 0.05%, and 1 standard per hour thereafter will maintain that level. To do a quick calculation of whether you are over 0.05% BAC, simply take the number of hours since your first drink and add 1 to it.
