I actually did that this weekend. Took 1.5mg of Xanax before and during a wedding (0.5mg at a time). About an hour after taking the last 0.5mg of Xanax, stupidly, I started drinking. Heavily.
I went from being the quiet, nervous guy in the corner to the life of the party. I even kissed a girl and got her number after pretty much banging her on the dance floor in front of my entire family.
Besides a moderate hangover, I felt fine until Sunday evening, when I had a mild panic attack. I've relapsed into a slight depression since. I'm not sure if the Xanax/alcohol mix is to blame, but I was improving until this weekend.
My suggestion is take it very easy with the alcohol. Drink a glass of water between drinks, and pace yourself.
