Is it safe to mix Ambien (zolpidem) with alcohol? Why or why not?

In brief: NO WAY!!

No and no! both are sedatives, in other words make you sleepy and they can be additive.
So they enhance each other and you can be knocked out and maybe even slow respiration and other not good things can occur. Pay attention to the label with the ambien (zolpidem). Pretty sure it say to not take with alcohol.
