Yes: but a liquid form is already available. Indeed, the majority of doses of it in the pediatric population is as a powder you mix up with water (keep in the refrigerator after it is mixed or use immediately).

Not Recemmended: Prescription medications should not be taken with any alcoholic beverages as the effectiveness can be altered. There are also dangers when medications are processed through the liver where the medications are processed causing higher or lower elevations of the medication in the system.
