Wine vs. Liquor

Millions of people indulge in alcohol, but many are unaware of the different ways that various types of alcohol impact your body. Some people mistakenly believe that liquor affects your body the same way that wine and beer do, and this mistake can sometimes lead to people operate machinery or make poor driving decisions under the influence of alcohol. It is very important to understand the differences between wine and liquor in order to avoid the consequences of driving while intoxicated.

If you have been charged with driving while intoxicated, you may face harsh penalties for a conviction. Contact an experienced Dallas DWI defense attorney at the Law Offices of Mark T.

Differences Between Wine and Liquor

Wine and liquor are like any other alcoholic beverage in that they can affect your body differently based on the amount that you consume. Some of the other differences between wine and liquor include:

  • Liquor’s alcohol content is usually around 40% while wine’s is about 12%
  • It often takes less liquor to reach the same level of intoxication
  • Wine is typically served in 4-8 oz. containers, while liquor is usually served in 4 oz. containers

Due the differences in these two substances, you may find yourself affected in different ways after consuming them. Frustratingly, this may lead to DWI/DUI charges.
