Will drinking alcohol be harmful on this low dose? Not daily of course, but maybe once or twice a week? Also, antibiotic resistance with this low of a dose would not be a concern, correct?

An occasional drink or two won't affect the efficacy of the doxycycline but some studies have determined that antibiotic resistance isn't dose dependent. It can occur even with very low doses.
