I have a glass (4oz) of wine once to twice weekly. I also drink socially, and drink mixed drinks and various shots. I was told to wait 3 months. I think I was around 5ish months post op when I first had a glass of wine. The first couple of times I drank, it did hit me hard and fast, then left me without a buzz pretty quickly.
Now, I can maintain a decent buzz, and it doesn't hit me any harder or quicker than pre-op. I was advised, it's empty calories, and just wasn't worth it during the losing stage. But, around 5months out, I had dropped 90ish pounds and it didn't negatively effect my losing at all.
