Can i drink with my irregular heartbeat

I have a irregular heart beat and it skips or adds a beat like 12 times a day.  I have no other symptoms besides a thump in my chest.  So would it be bad if i did drink

Binge or or regular heavy drinking is unhealthy regardless of you heart condition.  

To you question: I have a drink or two, maybe even three if it is an all evening event.  I frequently have one beer or one glass of wine with dinner. So I say the above while engaging in light drinking while suffering from AFib.

red wine is what triggered my first episode of a-fib, it was the sulfites I do believe.
I have tried potato vodka (free of sulfites) the only other alcohol I know of that is sulfite free is tequila and I do love a good margarita!
