When crossing the border with alcohol

Dear bird talk,

I’ve been trying to find out - when crossing the border from the U.S. to Canada, realizing that each person gets 40 oz of alcohol, how do you count it when you purchase the premixed drinks that hold all the fruit juice and mix, as well as the alcohol?

Response:
Ed: There is no difference; 40 ounces is 40 ounces if a bottle contains ANY alcohol. I enjoy the odd glass of red wine and would love to see them only assess the 7% alcohol content but, alas, no such luck.
