In brief: Not a good idea

While not a direct interaction with the keflex, alcohol will slow the healing process.
An antibiotic is taken to hold a "bug" (micro-organism) in check while your body's defenses can fight it off. Alcohol supresses your body's defenses- so therefore the healing is slowed and you may not acheive total eradication of the bug!
