Three sheets to the wind on only one night-cap? Incidentally,maybe we can start a thread sometime on drinking expressions.

I've got the first round. Wink

Drunk (state) - Half in the bag, Sideways.
Drunk (person) - Wastepail, Liquor pig.

That should open the flood gates. That being said, I'm off to grab myself a wobbly pop (beer).

Kanpai,

"grog blossom" is the colouring in the face that typifies someone who has been over-imbibing for many years.

So says the total abstainer scot47.

My Dad's favorite expression was in the "suds",meaning drinking beer.
He also called the liquor store the grog shop.

Pissed as a newt.

I've always loved the expression 'technicolour yawn'.

A good list so far. Here are some more that came to mind.

The Drink:

Liquid Courage - a tonic that generates the illusion of superhuman fighting ability within the soggy, addled pate of the imbiber.

Drunken state:

- pickled
- stewed
- pie-eyed

The Morning After:

- eyes like two pissholes in the snow
- the liquid laugh (a variation of the technicolour yawn)

Slainte,

Shaman
