But, generally, you can expect alcohol to be detectable in your urine anywhere from 12 hours to three days after you’ve had a drink. Urine tests can detect alcohol or ethanol itself or certain alcohol byproducts. The type of urine testing can also make a difference in whether the alcohol you consume is still detectable more than one day later.

Depending on how much alcohol you drink, it can be pretty hard to get rid of EtG within 36 hours before a test. Therefore, don’t drink alcohol 36 hours before a test if you can avoid it. If you did, all is not lost- just follow the instructions as well as you can. Eat protein to increase your creatinine levels. Break a sweat in any way you can.
