I enjoy a few glasses of wine now and then and I am on methotrexate. If you are getting your blood checked and your liver is ok then I don't think it does any harm.

I was told not on the day you take the drug or the day after and only six units a week.

I think, with meds like methotrexate, as they can be heavy on your liver you are meant to avoid things which also put pressure on your liver to process, such as alcohol.

I rarely drink anyway and rarely go out in the evenings as I'm too exhausted after working and in bed early to help with my routine to try and reduce fatigue but I've had the very odd drink and been fine. Probably just as well haha, I'd probably be accidentally taking people out wobbling around drunk with my walking stick :)
