Do Shots or Beer Get You Intoxicated Quicker?
Don’t forget to have a designated driver so you don’t become one of the many Albuquerque DUI offenders for the year!

You're heading out for a night out in Albuquerque with friends.  You only have a couple of hours to party so you want to find some drinks that will pack a punch.  Hopefully, you have planned ahead and have a designated driver or some cab companies ready for later so you don’t become another one of the many Albuquerque DUI offenders.  Now, let’s move on to the fun part.  What should you drink to get you inebriated the fastest? 


Check out this information on beer and shots: 


A normal shot is 1.5 ounces of liquor versus a normal beer which is 12 ounces.  If you are having straight shots, you will likely become intoxicated faster than if you are only drinking beer because of the higher alcohol content in liquor.  If you are drinking fun shots, however, you are likely getting a mixture of beverages and the alcohol content can be lower than beer depending on what is in them.  Also, when you drink a beer, you will consume more liquid than when you drink a shot.  This is important because your stomach is only capable of handling so much at a given time.  Once your stomach is full, you will feel full and you will not have the same urge to drink.  Therefore, you are more likely to become intoxicated more quickly when drinking straight shots.  However, do you really just want to get drunk or do you want to enjoy yourself and have a good time with your friends?  Also, there’s always a chance that if you get too drunk, you will end up doing something you regret and you will then have to call an Albuquerque DUI attorney.


Remember, Albuquerque DUI offenders face severe penalties so be wise when you are drinking.  Have fun but be responsible and call a cab or a sober friend to take you home.  If you do happen to get a DUI in Albuquerque, contact a skilled Albuquerque DUI attorney as soon as possible to help you with your case.
