Probably OK, but...: There is no interaction between penicillin and alcohol; it should be safe to drink alcohol in moderation. However, alcohol may not be good for the infection being treated. Probably no serious problem if you don't drink heavily, but it would be best to check with the doctor who prescribed it.
