Took a blood test after a 5-day trip involving excessive alcohol. liver enzymes came back elevated. could the drinking prior have influenced results?

Absolutely: Would recommend repeating test looking for normalization in few weeks and after abstaining from alcohol at least 2 weeks prior. If still elevated will need further workup.
