It depends which religion you are referring to. If you are referring to catholicism then no, it is not a sin to drink. In fact the bible sights Jesus drinking alcohol many times and the red wine is the very drink he offered as his blood. However it is a sin to get drunk.
Ephesians 5:15-20 (NLT) says, "So be careful how you live. Don't live like fools, but those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. Don't act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do. Don't be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, and, making music to the Lord in your hearts. And give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of Jesus Christ. Other scriptures are: Acts 17:11 Second Samuel 11:13 Romans 13:13 and more.
