2 doctors agree
In brief: Theoretically no
Alcohol in the blood stream inhibits white blood cells which act like pacman from locating and eating bacteria.
How much this may inhibit the eradication of strep from the throat with antibiotics is not well studied. My practical side says to go ahead as long as it is not to excess.
