Not a good idea: While consumption of small amounts of alcohol has not been shown to have adverse reaction with clindamycin; it is generally a bad idea to mix alcohol with medications.

Depends: It depends on the amount of alcohol you drink. With just one glass, side effects are virtually nonexistant.
