Viscosity data for alcoholic beverages of various sugar and alcohol percentages was obtained using m-VROC®. The measured viscosity of these commonly consumed beverages was found to be dependent upon the amount of water, alcohol and sugar within the fluid. The viscosity of ethanol water solutions had a parabolic relationship as the amount of ethanol in solution increased. The addition of sugar to alcoholic beverages was also increased the viscosity of these fluids. Shear rate sweeps were performed to confirm Newtonian behavior of alcoholic beverage solutions over the
range tested.
