Can I use “a little bit can go a long way” like this?
A: I'm a little confused by the way your question is structured with the "=", but your first sentence, "Be careful with that cocktail! A little bit can go a long way," is being used perfectly.
"You can't get wasted quickly" means the opposite of "A little bit can go a long way."
Q: This cocktail tastes funny, like medicine... bu doğru görünüyor mu?
A: It’s not wrong but most people would omit the “funny”,
“The cocktail tastes like medicine” or “this cocktail tastes awful. Like medicine.”
The second one is grammatically poor but it is also a natural way someone would speak.
Q: If you drink less cocktails, I could fall in love with you again. bu doğru görünüyor mu?
A: Use the past tense form of drink here.

The sentence is talking about drinking that occured in the past so you would say.

"If you drank less cocktails, I could fall in love with you again."

Also, cocktails is not a common word to use like this.

"If you drank less, I could love..." would be more natural.

It's more common to refer to drinking cocktails as just drinking or as drinking alchohol.
