With various hard seltzers being introduced every day and becoming equally popular, knowing the limit that gets you drunk before getting wasted becomes important.
Seltzers are of various types, out of which the two most popular are truly and white claw. Both of them have a distinct bubbly taste. Seltzers contain nearly 5% ABV, nearly the same amount as that of beer.
So, why is there no reason for this post, and get all the queries answered?
How Many Seltzers Will Get You Drunk?
The exact number of Seltzers that can get you drunk depends primarily on the weight and alcohol tolerance capacity of the person.
Generally, a can of seltzer contains 0.6 ounces of pure ethanol, which equals one standard drink. So, drinking around 4 to 6 cans of hard seltzers reaches a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08, thus making you drunk.
Moreover, mostly hard seltzers like white claw truly usually contain 5% alcohol by volume; however, some brands have Seltzers with up to 8% alcohol by volume.
Additionally, a number of other factors play their counter roles, out of which the most important one is weight and gender. So, here are a number of cans of seltzer that can get you drunk depending on your weight.
|Weight||No. Of Cans for Men||No. Of Can for Women|
|180 lbs||3 to 4||2 to 3|
|160 lbs||4 to 5||3 to 4|
|140 lbs||5 to 7||4 to 5|
|120 lbs||7 to 8||6 to 7|
Can I Get Drunk With One Can Of Seltzer?
No, a single can of seltzer can’t get you drunk, mostly. However, if you are trying alcoholic beverages for the first time or you weigh less than 100 lbs, there are some chances of getting drunk.
The reason is that the body of naive drinkers doesn’t have enough ADH enzymes to metabolize alcohol quickly. So, they are more susceptible to getting inebriated even after putting in a single can or two.
However, in most cases, 3 to 4 cans of seltzer make you feel tipsy.
Does Seltzer Get You Drunk Faster?
A quite interesting fact about Seltzers is that they kick in and get you to drink quite faster than other alcoholic beverages. The reason is that Seltzers are carbonated drinks and get absorbed in the bloodstream quicker than other alcohols.
Generally, Seltzers take nearly 10 minutes to get absorbed in your bloodstream as compared to other drugs that take nearly 45 to 60 minutes.
To cut it short, seltzers are hard liquors made by combining alcohol with carbonated water. It comes in two common forms, truly and white claw, and contains nearly 5% alcohol by volume, similar to beer. Generally, 3 to 4 cans of hard seltzer are enough to get you drunk. But, the exact number is controlled by various other factors like the weight of the person.
