I've read that alcohol emptying from the stomach into the small intestine can vary from 15 minutes to as long as six hours. The consensus seems to be 30 minutes to 2 hours...but I'm having problems finding good studies on the subject. I haven't found any that tested BAC after a fatty meal, etc. What is the time needed, after drinking alcohol on a full stomach of fatty food, for the alcohol to pass through the stomach and be absorbed in the small intestine?
