Drinking & Food in Stomach

About 20% of alcohol is absorbed into the bloodstream directly through the walls of the stomach and 80 % is absorbed into the bloodstream through the small intestine.

It is a myth that food absorbs the alcohol.  Drinking on a full stomach slows the absorption of alcohol because the stomach’s pyloric valve, which connects the stomach and small intestine, closes to allow good to digest.
