In brief: Depends

It depends on the type of supraventricular tachycardia (svt).
Some types of svt can be initiated or aggravated by consumption of alcohol, for others it may not effect it. You will likely have to make that determination yourself. Regardless, make sure to use alcohol in moderation for any cardiovascular benefit and to maintain overall good health!
