Depends: Entirely depends on how much you drank and how many hours between your blood test and your last drink. You need about 1-1.5 hours to burn off a standard drink. Though most routine screening blood tests do not check for an alcohol level. Unless it is for prior drinking...

If anemic: If a person is anemic, his hemoglobin test result will be low, regardless of whether or not he drank alcoholic drinks the day before. Likewise, if he is not anemic, his hemoglobin result will not be low, regardless of the alcoholic drinks he had the day before.
