This question is very difficult to answer because the amount of tequila needed to get drunk depends on many factors. Weight, gender, blood alcohol level, and the amount of food you ate before drinking can all contribute to how many shots of tequila you would need to get drunk. People who have smaller bodies or less experience with alcohol tend to be more susceptible to rapid intoxication. A rule of thumb is that for an adult, one standard shot (about 1.5 ounces or 44 ml) of tequila is enough to cause a mild effect. A healthy adult can generally consume an approximately 7 to 8 shots of tequila before reaching an alcohol level that will make them drunk. However, it is important to note that drinking too much tequila in a short period of time can lead to acute alcohol intoxication, which can be very dangerous. It is important to be responsible with alcoholic beverages and never drink too much in a short period of time. If you enjoy tequila, drink slowly and make sure you have eaten enough to slow the level of alcohol in your blood . If you plan to drink, always have safe transportation to get home or avoid drinking too much.
