Consuming alcohol when you have a sinus infection can make it worse. This is, at least in part, because your body needs more water and becomes dehydrated more easily when it's producing higher than normal amounts of mucus. Since alcohol dehydrates you, it follows that consuming it can worsen the symptoms of sinusitis.
