The degree of alcohol's effects is determined by the concentration in blood, which is influenced by the amount and rate of alcohol consumption, bioavailability due to factors such as rate of absorption, the biotransformation of alcohol, which may be influenced by genetic factors, and drinking experience.

 Alcoholic proof: Definition and Links by Encyclopedian.com
Alcoholic proof is a measure of how much ethanol, or "grain alcohol," is in an alcoholic beverage.
Alcohol is produced by yeast during the process of fermentation (and the other product of fermentation is carbon dioxide, which is the gas that can make beer bottles explode or blow their tops off).
The catch is that water and alcohol form a mixture (called an azeotrope) that has a lower boiling point than either one of them, so what distills off first is that mixture that is 95% alcohol and 5% water.

Therefore "80 proof" is 40% alcohol by volume (most of the other 60% is water), and pure alcohol would be "200 proof".
In beer, the alcohol is generally 3% to 12% (6 to 24 proof) and usually about 4% to 6% (8 to 12 proof).
This way, the alcohol content can be raised up to a maximum of 95.6% (191 proof), the concentration of the water/alcohol azeotrope.

 proof (alcoholic)
In Europe a different proof system, called Gay-Lussac, is used; it is also the percentage of alcohol by volume, which is half the American proof.
Later a legal standard for proof spirit was defined: half rainwater and half spirit proven by the gunpowder method.
Thus the same beverage may be 40 proof (Gay-Lussac), 80 proof (American), or 70 proof (British), depending on where you are drinking it.

 Alcoholic proof - Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Alcoholic proof is a measure of how much ethanol there is in an alcoholic drink.
It might have been earlier, when spirits were tested with gunpowder: a mixture of water and alcohol proved itself when it could be poured on a small amount of gunpowder and still light up the wet powder.
In the definition of the United States, the proof number is twice the percentage of the alcohol content measured by volume at a temperature of 60°F (15.5°C).

 Alcoholic proof - Definition, explanation
Depending on the strain of yeast, wines top out at about 14% to 16% (28 to 32 proof), because that's the point in the fermentation process where the alcohol concentration denatures the yeast.
There are "fortified" wines with a higher alcohol concentration than that because stronger alcohol has been mixed with them.
Thus a distilled liquor can't be stronger than 95% (190 proof); there are other techniques for separating liquids that can produce 100% ethanol (or "absolute alcohol"), but they are used only for scientific or industrial purposes.

 Alcohol Prohibition Was A Failure
Alcohol became more dangerous to consume; crime increased and became "organized"; the court and prison systems were stretched to the breaking point; and corruption of public officials was rampant.
The death rate from alcoholism and cirrhosis also declined rather dramatically in Denmark, Ireland, and Great Britain during World War I, but rates in those countries continued to fall during the 1920s (in the absence of prohibition) when rates in the United States were either rising or stable.
It should also be noted that death due to alcoholism and cirrhosis is thought to be the result of a long, cumulative process; therefore, the decrease in death rates must, in part, be at tributed to factors at work before the wartime restrictions on alcohol and Prohibition.

 Ethanol Summary
Ethanol, also known as ethyl alcohol or grain alcohol, is a flammable, tasteless, colorless, mildly toxic chemical compound with a distinctive odor, one of the alcohols that is most often found in alcoholic beverages.
Ethanol for use in alcoholic beverages, and the vast majority of ethanol for use as fuel, is produced by fermentation: when certain species of yeast (most importantly, Saccharomyces cerevisiae) metabolize sugar in the absence of oxygen, they produce ethanol and carbon dioxide.
Alcoholic beverages vary considerably in their ethanol content and in the foodstuffs from which they are produced.

 Absinthe FAQ- Absinthe Frequently Asked Questions
Due to its high proof and concentration of oils, absintheeurs (absinthe drinkers) typically add three to five parts ice-cold water to a dose of absinthe, which causes the drink to turn cloudy (called "louching") and often the water is used to dissolve added sugar to decrease bitterness.
The fact that he was an alcoholic who had drunk considerably after the two glasses of absinthe in the morning was forgotten, and the murders were blamed solely on absinthe.
The alcohol content of this cordial is 55% (110 proof), which does earn it that notoriety as being true absinthe.
