What to do about unlawful termination?

Question Details: I worked at will for my employer, where rules were implied about drinking on company time. I was out to lunch and ordered drink for my husband but a bar consultant bar was there. I was called into the office and fired for being seen with a drink. I explained that was for husband and I just sipped spilled foam and that I had no idea about the drinking policy. However, I was told that I was fired for being under the influence. Originally I was denied 6 weeks unemployment but that ruling was overturned stating that no breathalyzer was taken. Do I have a case for wrongful termination after 19 years of employment? I had been written up a week prior for someone in another building saying that I called him a loser, which I did, but that was before clocking in.
