When talking about alcoholic drinks, does 'grados' translate to %abv (alcohol by volume)?
Would 'bebidas alcohólicas con un nivel superior de veinte grados' be translated as 'alcoholic beverages with an alcohol content above 20% abv'?

    As an expert in drinking it does in fact refer to abv. above 20% I'm not sure of the context but drinks that have an abv of 20% are usually fortified wines such as sherry,marsala etc.

    Hi.

    Generally---alcoholic beverages above 20% alcohol are "spirits"

    Beers-----wines-----spirits.

    Fortified wines are wines with added "spirits".
