A. so commonplace a practice that it was considered vital to health.

Correct usage of "Noun" + "noun modifier". "that" refers to practice, "it refers" to "drinking alcohol"
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

B. so commonplace a practice to be considered vital to health.

Meaning error. It says that the "practice" is yet to be considered vital to health. INCORRECT
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

C. so commonplace a practice it was considered vital to health.

The antecedent of "it" is ambiguous. It can either be "practice" or "commonplace" INCORRECT
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

D. so commonplace a practice that it was considered to be vital to health.

"considered to be" is the wrong idiom usage and "to be" is repetitive. INCORRECT
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

E. a practice commonplace enough to be considered vital to health.

Meaning error. INCORRECT
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Hence I feel option A is correct choice
