Driving while drinking, or driving while drunk?

Is drinking while driving illegal? I know it's illegal to drive *drunk*, but what if you're just consuming a modest quantity of alcohol while driving, and you maintain a BAC under the legal limit while doing so?

For the record, I'm *not* preparing a legal defense, nor would I actually *do* this; I'm just curious! I was watching an old episode of the Simpsons, S18E06 "Moe'Na Lisa", and Homer goes on a road trip with Moe, while Moe serves him mugs of beer. He gets stopped by the police, but only because he's actually *drunk*, so what if he weren't drunk, just drinking?
