Is this ungrammatical?

「飲んでいたりします」

  • There are two differences here: (i) whether to have -ている on the verbs or on する, (ii) whether the two verbs should be symmetric. Do you mean to ask both? Jan 28, 2019 at 7:59

In general, you should always use 食べたり飲んだりしています, which is the correct way to apply the progressive ている to both verbs. Compare:

彼女は食べたり飲んだりしています。
She is eating and drinking.

彼女は食べたり飲んだりします。
She (will) eat and drink.

[?] 食べたり、飲んでいたりします。
[?] She eats and is drinking.
