Hi.. Any alcoholic drink in heavy amount is can cause dangerous effects in a person who has hypertension.. It is not what type of drink but how much drink that is important now.. Drinking in mild to moderate levels should be ok, but anything more can lead to complications.. But this has to be avoided, if you have associated diabetes or a liver problem too..
