Units are a clever way to help you know just how strong your drink is.
One unit of alcohol is 10 ml or 8g of pure alcohol. This equals a standard glass of champagne.
Alcoholic drinks are made by fermenting and distilling natural starch and sugar.
Champagne can contain lots of calories. Did you know, a standard glass (125ml) with 12% ABV can add 86 calories.
Champagne like any kind of alcohol, can stimulate the appetite and make calorific post-pub food like kebab and chips look more appealing.
How much is too much?
The UK Chief Medical Officer advises that people should not regularly drink more than the low risk drinking guidelines (14 units a week for men & women).
