General Surgeon 's  Response
Your history is suggestive of bleeding in the upper gastro-intestinal tract. The cause of this can be many, such as gastritis, gastric ulcer, duodenal ulcer, mallory-weiss tears, oesophageal varices. To know the exact cause, an upper GI Endoscopy is required. As this is a single episode of vomiting of less quantity, a period of observation with abstinence from alcohol and a course of Proton Pump Inhibitors is advisable. If you get repeated altered vomiting, i suggest you to get an endoscopy done.
