Brief Answer:
Consultation

Detailed Answer:
Hello, and thanks for your question.

This depends on how much alcohol you had. You metabolize about 1 drink per hour. I would wait until the alcohol leaves your system entirely before taking your Klonopin. If you had three drinks, I would wait three hours, for example.
