What should I say if I am stopped by a Police Officer in Michigan and he asks if I have been drinking?

You are not required to answer potentially incriminating questions. A polite "I would like to speak with an attorney before I answer any questions" is a good reply. On the other hand, saying that you have one or two beers is not incriminating: it is not sufficient to cause intoxication ­ and it may explain the odor of alcohol on the breath.
