In brief: Probably

But right off the bat, I can't think of what.
If a cold beverage is introduced into the stomach it could irritate the diaphragm which can then irritate the shoulder through the nerves. How much volume of alcohol causes this pain. Is it pop or back of the shoulder. There are no known connections between alcohol and shoulder pain.
