No. any food that you eat that has been cooked properly in alcohol will not be picked up by a breathalyzer. as said before, alcohol has an extremely low boiling point so the cooking burns it all away very easily. the food still has the taste of the drink but the actual ethanol isn't present.

Actually all of the alcohol can never be cooked out completely. As much as 5% remains after 2 1/2 hours of cooking in a stew-like dish The evaporation of alcohol from a sauce is relative to the ratio of water to alcohol. The less volatile the alcohol becomes the less it will evaporate. This is the reason why high percentage spirits are required to flame, but as soon as the alcohol content drops the flame goes out leaving a rather high percentage of alcohol behind, just not enough to support a flame.
