Let's get loaded/Let's kick up a row


Explanation:
You have a ? behind "in relation to being drunk? Therefore I assume that you are not quite sure whether the term is in relation to being drunk or not.

1) If it is about getting drunk, I suggest "Let's get loaded"
2) if it is about "lave gas" use "Kick up a row".
