This is what I would choose to do. From your description of the
situation, it could be something as simple as them having a drink
with/after dinner and not considering that this causes them to smell
of alcohol. In this case it might only take awareness of the issue
for them to remedy the problem (either not have the drink on scout
nights or brush their teeth afterwards or use some mouthwash).
Now if they were unwilling to address the issue, or if there was
indication of inappropriate use of alcohol, then it is an entirely
different keg o' worms.
