In brief: Not a good idea
Nyquil itself contains about 20% alcohol, but more importantly excessive alcohol is bad for the immune system, and itself makes many cold symptoms (particularly nasal stuffiness) worse.
Adding additional alcohol to nyquil increases the chance of intoxication, which aside from being illegal at your age, is dangerous, particularly behind the wheel of a car or anything similar.

In brief: Not a good idea
Nyquil and many other cold products contain alcohol and antihistamines.
The combination can cause excessive drowsiness and impaired alertness.
