Scotty drinks Tomar the Kelvan under the table only to pass out moments later — TOS: "By Any Other Name"
A split [evil] Kirk storms sickbay, grabs Saurian Brandy, assults crewmembers, and violates poor Yeoman Rand’s personal space (to say the least) — TOS: "The Enemy Within"
Zephram Cochrane is perhaps the most famous drunk for not being a drunk. History had ignored his heavy drinking until the TNG crew was forced to follow a Borg sphere back to the time of first contact. — ST:FC
The same movie also gives us Deanna Troi "blending" in as she tries to go shot for shot with Cochrane. — ST:FC
The Romulan Ale flowed freely during the Klingon/Federation dinner aboard the Enterprise-A which resulted in the entire senior staff being hung over the next morning. "Do you know anything about a radiation surge, Chekov?’
"Only the size of my head." — ST VI:TUC
With the TNG era synthehol was invented so we don’t see a lot of drunken escapades. One that was significant is when Captain Picard returns home after his Borg transformation and subsequent rescue. He and his older brother Robert get quite drunk on their family wine and have an emotionally cleansing scene where both old and new emotional scars are dealt with for the first time. — TNG: "Family"
And then of course any time the Klingons gather to celebrate expect a lot of Bloodwine, horseplay, drunken fights, and rousing choruses from Klingon opera and other traditional drinking songs.
Happy New Year!
