How much do you have to drink to get boozy breath or pores?

What's the bare minimum amount of alcohol that will show up on a person's breath and/or body scent? One drink? Enough that they'd be drunk? If someone shows up somewhere with a faint booze scent, is it possible that they had the "one glass of wine" as claimed, or is it a safe bet that it was much more?

I am aware that everyone's body chemistry is different, which is why I'm curious about individual experiences and opinions on this. This isn't a question about alcoholism, and I'm well aware of AA, Al-Anon, etc. Just curious about this aspect of metabolizing alcohol.*
*Especially as the weather is warming up, and I don't want to show up somewhere inadvertently smelling boozy if I've just been to a mostly-innocent garden party. For example.
