In brief: ABSOLUTELY!

Alcohol can be directly toxic to the heart in sufficient quantities.
Excessive drinking can cause any number of cardiac problems including svt. *i agree. In addition alcohol can lead to dehydration and electrolyte abnormalities - both of which can also contribute to arrhythmias.*.

In brief: Yes

Svt from alcohol is so common in fact, that the binge drinking that surrounds lots of holidays has resulted in calling it "holiday heart.
" it also can bring on other arrhythmias, particularly atrial fibrillation.
