    Hyperemia is one term for the red face vascular response to alcohol.

    Acute effects of different alcoholic beverages on vascular endothelium, inflammatory markers and thrombosis fibrinolysis system. "Forearm blood flow was determined by gauge-strain plethysmography, at baseline, 1 and 4 h after alcohol intake.Reactive hyperemia was significantly increased 1 h after beer and red wine consumption (p<0.05 for both), while it returned at baseline at 4 h (p=ns vs baseline) but remained unchanged in all the other groups."

    Rhinophyma is the large alcoholic nose. Flushing is simply a red face either from blood pressure of alcohol.
