No, you won't. Alcohol is a nervous system depressant - it makes things slow down. Kaluah has caffeine in it (which is what gives it it's coffee flavor) but it still has alcohol in it. With a heart condition you shouldn't be drinking at all because it can interefere with your cardiac medications. Now THAT combination could be harming to your body (although it won't kill you unless you're drinking in excess.
