To get the same number of carbs contained in one 12 oz can of coca cola one would need to roughly two 750 ml bottles of wine or almost three 12 oz cans of beer. To get the same amount of sugar contained in one 12 oz can of coca cola one would need to drink roughly 6 bottles of red wine or 4 bottles of white wine. It can't be done with beer, as beer normally has no sugar content.
