Interesting, thank you for posting.
Good tool for working out calories.

A useful tip if you want to work out alcoholic units in a drink: -

Multiply the number of litres of drink by the volume of alchohol (%)

e.g.
1 litre of 12.5% wine is 12.5 units
1 litre of 40% vodka is 40 units

To work it out in ml instead of litres, just divide by 1000

e.g.

a pint (568ml) of 5% lager would be... 568 x 5 = 2840 / 1000 = 2.84 units
a double (50ml) shot of 40% vodka would be 50 * 40 = 2000 / 1000 = 2 units

etc.
