This also happens when I'm angry, sad, embarrassed or any time of emotion really. It's like a mood indicator. Totally sucks especially at work. Someone can piss me off and I try to keep a poker face but Bam! my chest turns blotchy and everyone knows I'm mad.
I had to wear a high necked shirt for my speech class in college. It was embarrassing.

Not to bore anyone but if you're interested:
You have enzymes called aldehyde dehydrogenase which is suppose to break down the alcohol. Others too but mainly Asians lack some of this or all of it and it accumulates in the body causing flushing "redness".
I'm guessing you're turning red b/c you don't have a lot of this type of enzyme or its just not working fast enough.
I've been pretty lucky I don't get too red when I drink but I get sleepy (no fun!)
