If you do not have a preexisting liver disease like hepatitis b orc, or alcoholic liver disease, then by drinking alcohol in moderation will not cause any major problem.But to be absolutely safe and to help the healing of the laceration, i will advice to refrain from alcohol till the laceration has had enough time to heal.
You did not mention if you had surgical repair of the laceration or not.
