Girls and booze

A report by Datamonitor suggests British women are the biggest drinkers in Europe. According to a report on This is London, 'Those aged 18 to 24 are knocking back 357 pints of alcohol a year - equivalent to more than five bottles of wine a week. They get through more than three times as much as their Italian counterparts, who drink 104 pints a year, or one glass a day.'

OK - does this mean the alcoholic equivalent of 357 pints of wine per year, or is this simply the volume drunk? British women tend to drink a lot more lager and alcopops than their continental counterparts, suggesting that the gap in terms of alcohol might be a lot smaller. Unfortunately, it is impossible to tell from this report.
