In my house we have:

2L Bacardi
1.5L Gordons Gin
75cl Famous Grouse [although I bloody hate whisky]
2 btl Carlsberg Export
1 unopened bottle of red wine bought in 2002 from a monastery in Cyprus
1/2 btl Pimms
1/4 btl Malibu flavoured with Lime opened in c1999
collection of various single shot bottles collected from mini-bars around the world
4 cans of bitter [puke]
1/2 btl of toffee vodka
Full btl of chilli vodka

oh oh oh and there's a bottle of Lambrini under the sink I got for Secret Santa 2 years ago hmm

AIBU to wonder if this is going to be sufficient to get us through these dark times ahead? This snow is forecasted to last about 3 months isn't it?

OMG when I type it all ou I definitely feel blush. Or like throwing a party. That obvs no-one will be able to come to because of the snow hmm

I didn't buy any oxtail soup or tins of beans either, we are all doomed aren't we...

Do you have mixers? You're stuffed if you don't, sorry.

My nana had a bottle of advocaat once and I treid to make a cocktail with it when I was about 16.

Once I'd got the encrusted lid off the bottle I mixed it with vodka and it curdled. Put me right off...

Bollocks, nope no mixers.

Got Milk?

mixers are for pussies. and you need custard creams in an emergency

Yakshemash Fri 18-Jan-13 13:30:16

You need MUCH more wine!

ScarlettInSpace Fri 18-Jan-13 13:30:55

Nope no custard creams either.

I've clearly not thought this through...

I've got jaffa cakes, will they count?

Mmmm chilli vodka, sounds luverly.

I once used Strawberry flavour Benecol as a mixer, I had friends over, we had finished the wine and beer the. I found a dusty bottle of Bacardi in a cupboard, a long forgotten raffle prize, no coke etc so Benecol seemed reasonable........

You need more wine and plenty of mixers. grin

Sadly one night I found out that Brandy is the universal drink, there is nothing you can't mix it with!

I was very sick for two days after that night/revelation....

Pigsmummy at the end of a very long and fun party I once used potato soup.

ScarlettInSpace Fri 18-Jan-13 13:43:27

Does Lambrini not qualify as a mixer? I have passata too...

Ummm potato soup?? Totally down with Benecol though...

Manic I know the lack of wine is a fail, I may have to dig out the snowboard after all...

ScarlettInSpace Fri 18-Jan-13 13:44:20

I just double checked and its Chilli & Honey Vodka wink

MrsKeithRichards Fri 18-Jan-13 13:44:49

Depending on how hardcore you are you might need mixers. There was a dark evening at the end of last year when I had a smidge of vodka and no mixers, my only option was taking shots out an egg cup.

LaCiccolina Fri 18-Jan-13 13:44:54

Rather be in ur house than mine with that list!

ScarlettInSpace Fri 18-Jan-13 13:45:08

I only have 1 mini brandy sad

ScarlettInSpace Fri 18-Jan-13 13:47:02

I use tequila shot glasses as egg cups for the SK's boiled eggs grin

Yabu to have famous grouse, if you had nice whisky you'd like it!

Dh works for a whisky firm and has an extensive collection which he keeps in the electricity meter cupboard. Every time the meter is read the man looks at me like hmm

I agree you urgently need mixers if you are to make it through!

EyesCrossedLegsAkimbo Fri 18-Jan-13 13:51:22

Chilli and honey vodka? Sounds delicious.

Re lack of mixers, if you've got tap water you're good to go. grin

TreadOnTheCracks Fri 18-Jan-13 13:56:31

Ice? Have you got ice?

oneforthemoney Fri 18-Jan-13 13:59:33

Potato soup??? Where can you even buy that?!! Sounds grim even without the alcohol. Admit it, you put booze in it to make the soup more bearable, didn't you?

Reminds me of vodka and kia-ora day at university..

VisualiseAHorse Fri 18-Jan-13 14:01:41

I've got ice!!! Loads of it.

Shame my freezer has fuck all else in it.

But I do have some chocolate vodka!

ScarlettInSpace Fri 18-Jan-13 14:04:23

Just realised we have cordials [and tap water, good point] phew... Lime and Blackcurrant so an actual choice grin

Ice no dammit.... will snow do? we have lots of that? or I could fill all my shot glasses with water and leave them outside for an hour or two, that would kind of make ice cubes <has practical hat on, nods sagely>

Vodka & kiaora, yep been there done that...

I have a halfdead mint plant on the kitchen window sill - I can kind of make mojitos whooop!
