Suggest treatment for high blood pressure

I drank alcohol last night-- and my blood pressure just now, 24 hours later, is 105 over 65, and pulse rate is 109. i had a cath 2 weeks ago and heaert was fine, although i had 2 stents put in in2005, heart attack, and 2006, blockage. Could the alcohol consumed last night be causing dehydration, thus the above readings.
