Breastfeed as soon as you need to,, there's no need to wait at all after only one drink.

2 hours depending on amount of alcohol. 1 beer can or 1 glass of wine is what I've heard that rule for. That is when the alcohol is out of your system... however i understand it to  mean you can feed  then like right after the drink. If you feel worried you can pump and dump in 2 hours.. but it would take you actually being DRUNK for enough alcohol to be in your milk, the one drink should be fine. This is only how I understand the "rule" to be and how it was explained to me.

^^What larissa said :)

The rule of thumb is "safe to drive, safe to nurse", so as long as you don't feel a buzz, it's good. Also, pumping and dumping serves absolutely no purpose unless you are feeling engorged and are too drunk to nurse.

No need to wait at all. Safe to drive is safe to nurse. If you get wasted then only pump enough  to relieve any discomfort. The alcohol leaves your milk at the same rate it leaves your blood.
