Solo Cup Challenge

Do You Know What Is In Your Solo Cup?

Solo Cup measurements

Before drinking, always know the type and exact amount of alcohol in your cup, and keep track of what you are drinking!

You don’t have to pack a measuring cup! Use the lines on a 16 ounce solo cup as a guide to measure drinks!

A Standard Drink Is Equal To:

  • 12 ounces of beer (5% alcohol)
  • 4.5 ounces of wine (12% alcohol)
  • 1.5 ounces of 80 proof liquor (40% alcohol)
  • 1.0 ounces of 100 proof liquor

12 oz beer equals 4.5 oz wine equals 1.5 oz liquor does not equal one solo cup
