I wouldn't do it, but the half-life of Xanax is 9 to 20 hours. If you drink nine hours from when you took it, well...you can do the math. It probably wouldn't hurt you but it may tax your liver a little and you may or may not get drunk faster (and be more prone to blackouts). There is a risk of seizure, though.
I definitely wouldn't hit the hard stuff, but beer? Maybe. "Some beers"? Probably not. A beer? I doubt it would have much of an effect but I really don't know. I took Xanax recreationally as a kid and routinely mixed it with alcohol, but I also saw a lot of kids go really wrong with that kind of thing, too.
It being Saturday night, the best you can probably do is ask a pharmacist. Or if you have insurance that offers a 24/365 "ask a nurse" program, call them. Better yet, do both. Even better yet, don't drink at all until you get an answer from a doctor.
I asked a pharmacist once about
drinking with clonazepam, and he sort of smiled and shook his head no. "I don't think you want to do that", he said.
