Thanks for posting your query.
Taking alcohol on an empty stomach will stimulate gastric acid production tremendously and the heat produced is causing the symptoms. These are expected symptoms after alcohol consumption. It is advisable to consume alcohol in dilute form along with a fat containing meal so that it causes less acid production and is digested slowly producing a small amount of heat for a longer duration.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
