Yes, by using breath mints, Elderberries, mouthwash, etc. However, this will not prevent the detection of alcohol by a Breathalyzer.

Can you use onion garlic or lemon to kill the smell of alcohol on your breath?

the direct answer is can use things to mask or cover up the smell of alcohol (gum, mints or I guess garlic) but alcohol is absorbed into the blood. Your lungs absorb oxygen from the air you breath and expels carbon dioxide when you exhale. Likewise the alcohol in your blood does produce a smell of alcohol in the air you exhale. This will continue until your body metabolizes the alcohol in you're blood. So yes you can convert it up but you can't "kill" or eliminate it.

The smell of alcohol does not come from the inside of your mouth, rather it comes from your stomach. Covering the smell of Vodka with mints or mouth wash would only be temporary at best. If you are just trying to avoid mom or dad from catching the odor, you might get away with breath mints but don't think this will fool a police officer making a traffic stop. Traffic officers will alert to the breath mint smell for what it is and assume you are trying to mask the fact you have been drinking.
