Is it OK to drink alcohol?

Yes, but don't come drunk to prayer.

Draw not near unto prayer when ye are drunken, till ye know that which ye utter. 4:43

No, it is a great sin.

Strong drink and games of chance. Say: In both is great sin. 2:219

Strong drink and games of chance ... are only an infamy of Satan's handiwork. 5:90

Maybe.

And of the fruits of the date-palm, and grapes, whence ye derive strong drink and (also) good nourishment. Lo! therein is indeed a portent for people who have sense. 16:67

Is Allah saying in 16:67 that since both alcohol and food come from plants, and plants were made for human use, that it is OK to drink alcohol? Or is he saying both good (food) and bad (alcohol) things come from plants?
