Best Answer

It depends on how much alcohol was in the drink and on your body. On average alcohol is metabolized at a rate of .015 BAC per hour, so divide your BAC by .015 and you get how many hours the drink will be in your system. Another way is for every half pint of beer or 25 mL of liquor you drink, it will stay in your system for 1 hour. A half pint of vodka will take 10 hours.
