If you drink alcohol in the evening from 8pm up to 1am in the morning it has been proven you would pass a breathalizer next day at 8am in the morning.

Your body can process the equivalent of 1 oz of 100 proof liquor (or 5 oz of wine or 12 oz of 5%abv beer) at the rate of 2-3 the first hour and 1 per hour after that up to a total of about 6. Weight and amount of food eaten also plays a factor.

It depends on the person's metabolism, but in general it takes one hour for each drink to metabolize. A glass of wine, bottle of beer or shot of hard liquor all take about the same time to metabolize.

It takes about 1 hour for the average body to process 1 ounce of alcohol. This equates to 1 beer, or a glass of wine.

It may be safe to say that for every 12 ounce drink you have it takes 1 hour for it to exit the body. The OH portion of alcohol compounds bonds very well with H2O in cells of the body and takes a while for the bonds to be eliminated.
