Does adding water to wine / spirits reduce the alcohol content?

In my exploration of whether adding water to wine or spirits reduces the alcohol content, I've found that it's not quite as straightforward as it seems. Yes, technically, adding water dilutes the alcohol concentration, making each sip less potent. However, it doesn't reduce the total amount of alcohol in your glass. So, if you consume the whole diluted drink, you'll still intake the same amount of alcohol. It’s a fascinating fact that shows how volume and alcohol content interplay in our drinks.

As a lover of various alcoholic drinks, I've often been asked what certain beverages like whisky, wine, and beer taste like.
