Generally, weakness for alcohol is also an indicator of womanizing, hence the association of the word 酒 (alcohol), with 色 ( lechery). People With 酒色 tendencies definitely do not have the respect of society and poor girl, she should have been more discreet in choosing the guests.

It is easy to say that it was the girl's fault for not refusing the drinks, but in China social culture is in many ways as it was in the west 100 or more years ago. In Europe all those years ago it was considered clever and strong to drink more alcohol than others. Drinking games and competitions were a part of social and business life. China retains this attitude. Furthermore, young people and girls are largely unskilled at developing social relationships due to upbringing and the education system. They will show off and copy others in attempts to gain popularity. In business, lunches can develop into drinking competitions where a person feels he/she has to drink to get the business.
I feel that this is a sad situation but like all social change, it will take many years to evolve into sensible social drinking.
As with drugs and smoking, it is OK to refuse politely and firmly. Respect is earned by such decisions.

Are you sure about Chinese culture? 20 years ago a nice girl would never drink alcohol and would not be expected to do so.
