Brief Answer:
Yes but watch for increased drowsiness

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome here.
I understand your concerns.
Xanax and alcohol have almost similar biological actions on brain. You can take your regular dose of Xanax (2mg as you mentioned) now. (after 12 hours of last alcohol intake) However, there can be some increased drowsiness. So, please avoid driving, swimming and heavy machinery work.

All the best.
Thanks.
