drinking always makes my skin much worse, even when i was on low dose accutane. in fact i think it was the only thing that could give me acne when i was on it.

In men alcohol is a strongly suppresses testosterone production. Keep in mind that hormones are complicated, and that there are many.

The luteinizing hormone (LH) is basically the master androgen. The more LH released, the more your testicles produce testosterone. So while alcohol suppresses T, your body tries to compensate by surging LH. That's also the reason why sexual urges go up, because LH also controls that.

That much I do know, and I'm sure there's some implications on other hormones, and when the alcohol finally wears off there may be a temporary surge of T.

Hmm... this varies very largely on an individual basis. The best advice is, drink water between beers / shots, stay away from really sugary drinks, and try to get atleast a little sleep. Otherwise have fun that you don't care about your skin for a few hours :)
