In brief: It may not be due to

the colonoscopy itself - but instead because intravenous sedation or anesthesia is used.

In brief: Mixing drugs

The sedation or anesthesia can involve powerful medications, most do not mix well with alcohol.
Ask you doctor- some use low doses and less restriction might be in order.
