Why do females get to absorb more of the alcohol they consume than do males?

Answer The female stomach produces less of the enzyme that breaks down alcohol

The female stomach produces less of the alcohol-digesting enzyme ADH than does the male stomach. Thus, females get to absorb more of the alcohol they consume than do males. Age, genetics, drinking history, percent body fat, type of alcoholic beverage are some of the other factors that impact the digestion of, and body response to, alcohol.
