It’s no secret that the U.S. loves its booze. Whether it’s enjoying a good cocktail party or indulging in drinking games, Americans take any excuse to relax and throw back a few. But recent studies suggest we might be imbibing more than we should, especially in these top-ranking states.
New Hampshire topped the list with total alcohol consumed per capita at 4.72 gallons. The District of Columbia came in second at 3.82 gallons of alcohol consumed per capita. Both far exceeded what is deemed “healthy” by federal standards, which is no more than 2.1 gallons annually per person.
