In brief: Yes, but...

Yes, you can. However, if you are taking certain medications, the alcohol may interact with those.
The root canal by itself is not a contraindication to drinking.

In brief: Usually

Typically a temporary is placed over the area and a drink of alcohol would usually be okay.

In brief: Alcohol

Having a root canal is not a problem with drinking alcohol.
If you are taking medication , that could have an effect but not the root canal itself.
