May be acceptable: The half life is about 30 hours so technically you should wait 2 1/2 days for the drug to be completely metabolized. The main issue is the potential for liver disease with both Fluconazole and alcohol. It depends on how many you take, how much alcohol you usually drink and if there is preexisting liver disease. If you are concerned, wait 2-3 days.
