Depends.: cannot say in your particular case, but generally, there isn't that strong of an interaction. Main issue is if it is enough alcohol to directly cause serious harm (ulcer, seizures, pancreatitis, hospitalization). The RA drugs will complicate the issue. One drink. no, not an issue.

Humira (adalimumab) & alcohol: Alcohol does not interact with humira (adalimumab). If you are also on Methotrexate alcohol should be avoided.
