s/o How much booze do you keep in the house

On a regular basis? 

I usually have a bottle of red wine, vodka, whiskey, and some beer on hand.  Right now I'm down to just a bottle of wine and beer.  I'm the only one who drinks though.  What do you keep at home?

  • None except some vodka that is being used to make vanilla extract. We don't drink. I can't stand the taste.

  • We have several bottles of whatever liquor DH likes.  I think it's mostly scotch, bourbon and gin.  I don't touch that stuff. 

    I have several bottles of wine.  We usually have a 6 pack of beers around.

  • 4-5 bottles of scotch, 4-5 bottles of red wine. That's about it.

  • We always have at least a 6 pack in the fridge, and I usually have a bottle of wine or Captain Morgan in the fridge, but I drank all my wine Friday night. Liquor store stop will be necessary today.

    We usually don't keep much, since we maybe each have a drink or 2 once a week.

  • Random assortment of beers in the fridge (usually craft beers), 1-3 bottles of wine, a few bottles of scotch (for DH) and staple liquors like vodka and gin.

  • We threw out everything in our "bar" a few years back, simply because it had sat around untouched for so long and we need the space for other things. We really don't drink anymore- it just doesn't interest us? I've never liked wine, and while I can appreciate a good beer, I don't appreciate it enough to spend money on it. ;)

  • 7-8 different liquors, we have a 20 bottle wine rack that is at least 3/4 full most of the time, and then a case or 2 of beer.

  • Tons, I've lost count. I don't even drink but my husband works for a production company who does alcohol

  •  I drink gin and he drinks rum, plus he drinks some beer. I will buy wine if friends are coming over. We buy in small amounts because otherwise I'd turn into one of those Moms from the 60's who has 3 martini's with dinner. So we don't keep it in the house other than weekends.
  • We usually keep a 12 pack of beer in the fridge for games or the occasional drop in but clearly you all put us to shame.

  • Several bottles of wine. Rum. Whiskey. Tons of other mixers and liquors that we won't touch for months at a time. A few beers. Maybe a grown up pouch in the freezer.

  • We usually have an assortment of whiskey, rum, vodka, and tequila hanging around...I only really drink the vodka regularly. MH doesn't drink liquor, but he always has a surplus of Budweiser and Bud Lite laying around. As for wine, I usually have at least a bottle of 2 white in the house. I don't drink reds very often anymore.

  • I have an opened bottle of white in the fridge now and a bottle of wine my husband bought and opened in the fall.

    If anyone drops in, we pretty much can only offer them water, juice, or seltzer. ;)

  • We have a stocked bar, though much of it hasn't been touched since college.  EW

    I probably have about 6 bottles of drinkable wine at the moment and a couple cases of beer.  We have random visitors a lot so we like to make sure we've got it.  That, and we drink a lot

  • We have a lot of liquor that never really gets touched: vodka, bourbon, scotch, gin, baileys, kahlua, grand marnier, brandy, rum. 

    DH always has some beer on hand, and we usually have a few bottles of wine on our rack.

    ETA: Also tequila and amaretto. And some others I'm sure I'm forgetting. You guys are making me feel like a lush.

    Not enough.

     

     

    But really, we usually have a bottle of red wine and a couple microbrews of some sort on hand. Occasionally H will have a small bottle of Pendleton whiskey stashed - his mom gifts it every couple of years. We've also had the same bottle of tequila for over a year to make the occasional margarita with.

  • Too much. Tons of hard liquor, beer and about 50 bottles of wine in the wine cellar.

  • I have a very well stocked liquor cabinet. Mostly because I only ever drink rum or vodka on a  regular basis, The other liqueurs and gin/whiskey/tequila are just for specific drinks or guests.

    Beer gets drank pretty quick when we buy it. DW is the wine consumer.

  • None. If I want some wine or something, I will buy it when I need it. Yes, need it.

  • Lots and lots.  I've mentioned on her before that DH works for the 2nd largest alcohol distribution company in the U.S.  We get freebies all the time.  If the bottles are damaged in any way, including just a scratched label, then it's free to a good home.  So, you name it, we've probably got it.  I do still buy wine on occasion if we don't have a particular one on hand that I am craving.

  • Very little. I only use alcohol for cooking. DH drinks on the weekends but only buys what he wants in small quantities. The only time we have a stockpile is after the holidays when people give it to him as gifts. *eye roll*

    Wait are you eye-rolling getting alcohol as a gift?

  • Whatever our friends or family leave at our house.  Mostly a variety of beer, Jaeger, bourbon.  I have an unopened bottle of wine from Christmas that I'm saving for a steak dinner this summer and an unopened bottle of Dark Lord beer that I'm saving for Christmas.

  • You don't *save* booze. You save the empty bottles to return for the deposit and use it to buy new booze.
