This video is for illustrative purposes and it is important to note that both Liam & Mary have drank 6 or more standard drinks in one sitting, which is binge drinking. Binge drinking (or heavy episodic drinking) is consuming six or more standard drinks in one sitting, usually in a short space of time. This is the equivalent of three pints of cider (568ml), six bottles of lager (330ml) or four glasses of prosecco (150ml).
