If you are having a drink or two that's one thing, if you're consuming half a bottle that's another. personally i don't see anything wrong with it. I have spent a good portion of my life working on things while having a drink or two. Two is my limit unless drinking is what I'm planning on for the night then i just do that one thing but that's a once or twice a year thing. Now shooting a drinking is another whole thing and that's frowned upon. Anyone here who thinks he shouldn't ever use a gas grill to cook while drinking a beer in the summer?
