No: This is a dangerous and even potentially life-threatening combination, depending on your health, the dose of clonazepam, and how much you drink.

Klonopin/alcohol: I always advise against mixing the two, due to excess sedation & memory problems, as well as more intensified hangover symptoms the following morning.
