If you’re the kind of person who likes to kick back with a beer or a glass of wine at the end of a busy work day, then you’re most likely also the kind of person who wants to tip a few back on the rare occasion that you can take a vacation to some exotic locale. Of course, different countries have different rules when it comes to tying one on. As people love booze and hate regulating fun, it can be kind of tough to determine exactly how much is too much. For example, did you know there’s not a universally accepted standard drink size? Fortunately, we’ve got you covered with a list of some of the upper-limit recommendations in some of the world’s hottest travel destinations. Cheers!

Authorities around these parts start to get concerned when men consume more than 2 drinks (or 28 grams) a day and women consume more than 1 drink a day. What’s the point of having a single drink?
