Maybe she just got dumped, or maybe she's just working through some stuff. Either way, when that booze hits her system, here come the waterworks.  You'll most likely find her huddled in the bathroom with a friend idly rubbing her back while muttering soothing words.

S/he is really friendly, but after one too many cocktails, they move on from "I love you, man" to "I want to put my tongue down your throat, man."  Which can either be really awesome or really awkward.
