### What is the formula for calculating alcohol?

Doing the sum – You can work out how many units there are in any drink by multiplying the total volume of a drink (in ml) by its ABV (measured as a percentage) and dividing the result by 1,000.

strength (ABV) x volume (ml) ÷ 1,000 = units

So, to work out the number of units in a pint (568ml) of strong lager (ABV 5.2%):

5.2 (%) x 568 (ml) ÷ 1,000 = 2.95 units

14 units is equivalent to 6 pints of beer, 6 glasses of wine or 7 double measures of spirits. Still not sure about units? Try the Scottish Government’s alcohol unit generator and alcohol unit calculator, Last updated: 04 January 2023

### How many 2 liters per person?

Other Non-Alcoholic – Okay, back to the easy stuff: your other non-alcoholic drinks like soda, lemonade, and punch. I’d estimate one drink per person, per hour of the event, plus one more each. In other words, if the party is three hours long, plan on each person having around four servings of their chosen beverage.

- That doesn’t mean each person will have that many drinks; some will have more and some will have less.
- But if you can figure out an average, you should have plenty to go around.
- A 2-liter bottle of soda will give 10 8-ounce servings, while beverages that come in gallon containers will yield 16 8-ounce servings.

That comes out to four drinks per person during our three-hour party, which means we’ll need five bottles of soda or three gallons of juice or a mix of both to total 48 servings. Whew that was a lot of math. But now that it’s out of the way, it’s time to pour yourself a drink and go enjoy the party! Ciaran Keast loves art, semicolons, books, cats – and all the tea, ever.

### How much wine do I need for 20 guests?

Wine for a Party – If you’re buying wine for your party, the math for figuring out how much to buy is fairly simple. One standard bottle of wine contains 5 servings. To figure out how many bottles you’ll need in an hour, divide the number of wine-drinking guests by 5.

- For example, if 20 of your guests are drinking wine, the math would look like this: 20 (guests) ÷ 5 (servings) = 4 (bottles for one hour of partying) Then to determine how many bottles you’ll need for your whole party, simply multiply by how many hours you plan on entertaining for.
- Let’s say those same 20 people are hanging out for 3 hours.

The math would look like this: 4 (bottles) x 3 (hours) = 12 (bottles) You’ll need 12 bottles of wine to keep 20 guests happy and buzzed for 3 hours. Simple!
