    I'm not a heavy drinker.

    "I'm n
    ot able to drink too much liquor."
    Otherwise it depends on the reason you are not able to drink it, or the reason that you are explaining this.
    "If I drink too much liquour, I turn into a raging maniac."
    "I can't hold my alcohol."
    "I'm can't drink much, because I have to drive."
    "I can't drink too much liquour, because after three drinks, I'm unconscious under the table."

    "I'm a bad drinker" isn't colloquial.

    Re: How to say i not able to drink too much liquor?

    "I'm teetotal" works sometimes.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Not a teacher nor a native speaker.

    No, Boris. "I'm teetotal" means "I choose not to drink alcohol at all".

    In BrE, you can say "I'm a lightweight" or "I'm a cheap date" to show that you get drunk after just a couple of alcoholic drinks.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
