In brief: Paracetamol

Paracetamol is available otc without a prescription.
Drinking a small amount of alcohol while taking paracetamol is usually safe as long as you follow the advice above. Paracetamol should be used with caution if you have certain health conditions, such as liver problems. Caution is the best way to approach the use of paracetamol and alcohol.
