ALCOHOL_CONTENT_COMPARISON

How does the alcohol content in Sex In The Post Office compare to other popular cocktails?

With an alcohol content of 6.86%, Sex In The Post Office is relatively lower in alcohol compared to many classic cocktails like a Margarita or Martini. This makes it a lighter option suitable for those preferring a milder drink.
