I'll guestimate in the range from 2 to 3.

That's based on how many gulps I can take from a 12-oz can of beer.

I measured how much a mouthful of beer was in 15 male and 15 female subjects.  On average it was 37 mL (a bit more than an oz) for women and 85 mL (nearly 3 oz) for men.

There are many different-sized mouths.

Don't you have a measuring cup at home?  Pretty easy to measure.
