For every ounce of alcohol that is consumed it takes approximately one hour for you liver to digest it of metabolise it. So for three shots of alcohol, which is about three ounces; this will take approximately 3 hours to metabolise. However, this is a very rough guide and is dependent on a lot of factors, for instance: The strength or percentage of the alcohol, the weight of the individual that is consuming the alcohol and the amount of food that the person has eaten before drinking.  Furthermore, even if this rough guide is followed, there is still a high risk that alcohol may be detected by smelling it on your breath, however, it is believed that even if you detect alcohol by smell, it doesn’t necessary mean that would be considered under the influence.

According to medical recommendations of what is regarded as a healthy amount of alcohol to consume during a weekly basis without causing any long term damaging side effects to you well being is as follows:

•Men should drink no more than 21 units of alcohol per week (and no more than four units in any one day).
•Women should drink no more than 14 units of alcohol per week (and no more than three units in any one day).

Women who are pregnant should avoid drinking copious amounts of alcohol, as it has been medically proven that a lot of alcohol consumed during the pregnancy can be extremely damaging to the health of the unborn child. Though it is believed that a small amount of alcohol infrequently will probably not be harmful, the actual safe amount is still unknown. Therefore, to play safe, advice from the Department of Health is that pregnant women and women trying to become pregnant should not drink at all. If you do choose to drink when you are pregnant then limit it to one or two units, once or twice a week. And never get drunk.

Your liver metabolizes 1 ounce of alcohol per hour. If you drink 3 shots or 3 ounces of alcohol the liver will metabolize (get it out of ) and it will be undetectable in your blood 3 hours later. HOWEVER! Your breath may still smell of alcohol or consumed alcohol for many many hours after it is out of your system, but you wont be under the influence if the proper time has passed for each ounce.

It will stay there for only 24 hours or even less. You take it out as it is liquid, and since it is 3 shots, then it more of taking it out earlier.
