In brief: Pump/dump
The alcohol in any drink you take will pass in the breast milk.
The only way to avoid exposure is to pump and dump any accumulation in the duration of your night out and the next 6-8 hours. There is no safe exposure level.

In brief: Alcohol in breast
Alcohol is metabolized at the rate of 1 oz/hr. Use that as a guide to figure out how far from breast feeding you could drink.
