In brief: Depends
If you have a history of liver disease (cirrhosis, hepatitis, etc) you should not be drinking alcohol as it may further compromise liver function.
If your liver function is normal, there is no reported interaction between the antibiotic flucloxacillin and alcohol. However, it is best not to consume alcohol while taking medications.

You can, but keep the quantities down as it can affect the efficacy of the drug.
