10 to 20 minutes

HINT: After absorption, the alcohol enters the bloodstream and dissolves in the water of the blood. The blood carries the alcohol throughout the body. The alcohol from the blood then enters and dissolves in the water inside each tissue of the body (except fat tissue; alcohol cannot dissolve in fat). Once inside the tissues, alcohol exerts its effects on the body. The observed effects depend directly on the Blood Alcohol Concentration (B.A.C.), which is related to the amount of alcohol consumed. The B.A.C. can rise significantly within 20 minutes after having a drink.
