Know how much you are drinking glasses

To avoid long-term health risks, the Health Promotion Agency (HPA) recommends that at any one time:

  • men drink no more than 3 standard drinks
  • women drink no more than 2 standard drinks.

This plastic drink cup is marked with the standard drink size for:

  • a 4% beer/RTD
  • a 6% beer
  • a 8% RTD
  • a 12% glass of wine
  • a 30ml drink of 40% spirits.

It is a useful tool to show what a standard drink really is.
