There is no direct correlation. It is known that EtG is cumulative so more drinks = more EtG. However, the amount of EtG produced by 1 drink will vary from individual to individual. The amount of EtG produced is dependent on 1) your metabolism in relation to 2) the amount of alcohol consumed. Women, by the way, have a faster ethanol elimination rate than men which probably also applies to EtG although not established. Few women included in researched groups.
