Hello and welcome to HCM.
Thank you for your query.
The entrance of a foreign substance (liquor) into the respiratory tract
might have resulted in irritation of the upper (in your case) respiratory tract, which took some time to resolve. As long as you didn't have difficulty in breathing, I am sure there will not be any problem in the future. This was nothing but irritation and as a result swelling of the surrounding structures.
I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications. I would gladly help you.
