In brief: Nope

Any liquid with salt (sodium) will likely maintain or increase blood pressure.
The only time that sodium bicarb would cause problems and lower blood pressure is in someone who has a weak heart and has already congestive heart failure which would be worsened and thus drop blood pressure.
