Default Calculation ABV after adding liquor?

Hello, how do I calcuate the alcohol content of a beer after adding liquor? I have a very low 2% beer made with second runnings of a batch. It is very low but I would still like to experiment to see what it tastes like after adding some more booze. The liquor is 49.5% and a 750ml bottle. I will be kegging 5 gallons of beer. How much would it bump up the abv by adding the whole bottle? Half the bottle? I have no target alcohol percentage I'm looking for just wondering how to calculate this. Thanks
