   The Facts:
$10.80 per 1.75L bottle of liquor

39.45 drinks per bottle at 1.500 oz per drink
36.98 drinks per bottle at 1.625 oz per bottle

39.45 drinks – 36.98 drinks = loss of 2.47 drinks per bottle
2.47 drinks * 7 bottles per week = 17.29 drinks per week
17.29 drinks * 52 weeks per year = 899.08 drinks per year

$4.00 * 899.08 drinks = $3556.32 per year

3 * $3556.32 = $10668.96 per year per type of liquor!
