Can you pour a standard drink?

A standard drink has 10g of pure alcohol in it. But how do you know exactly how much that is? How full should you fill the glass?

Filling a glass to the top doesn't necessarily mean you have poured a standard drink. Glass sizes vary. The percentage of alcohol in a type of drink, such as wine, beer or spirits, often varies too. This makes it very easy at a party or at home to pour a much bigger helping than just one standard drink.
