• In the American vernacular, a forty-ounce or simply forty is a glass or plastic bottle that holds 40 fluid ounces (1.18 liters, or 2.5 U.S. pints) of malt liquor.


  • Standard Drinks per Bottle Beer: There is one standard drink in a regular 12-ounce can or bottle of beer, and there are one and a half standard drinks in a 16-ounce tall boy. Another container, referred to as a 40s, is made up of 40 ounces of beer, which is the equivalent of three and a half standard drinks.

    Similarly, what does 40 mean in rap? It is an appropriate drink selection for a man whose nickname and rap moniker was first given to him based on an ability to drink many 40-ounce malt liquor bottles. E-40 is also often called 40 Water, because he purportedly used to drink 40s like water.

    Keeping this in consideration, how much alcohol is in a 40?

    The essence of the 40 is its combination of size, power and price. At between .25 and .50, essentially the same as a quart bottle, and with an alcohol content of 5.6 to 8 percent, compared with 3.5 percent for regular beer, the 40-ounce malt liquor offers more punch for the money.

    Will a 40 get you drunk?

    If you drink the 40% (80 proof) faster than that, it could happen very fast. About 4 or 5 shots (drink) in an hour would probably get a 15 year old (not familiar with drinking) very drunk. Too much alcohol can be fatal! A pint of of that vodka in a half hour could have the potential to kill a normal size human.
