GUEST,Learaí na Láibe Words for Liquor (37) RE: Words for Liquor 27 Jun 14

I take it that liquor refers to spirits and not any alcoholic beverage in general.

Here in Ireland::-

A drop
A dropeen
A wee drop
A smathán (smahawn)
a drop of the craythur.
Poitín, potcheen (this only refers to illegally brewed whiskey)
A small one.

I'm sure there are many more, but that's what comes to the mind at the moment.

Memory probably adversely effected by over consumption of the above. :)
