    to go on booze ?

    Hello. I have a question concerning colloquial expression of drinking strong spirits - I have found "to go on a binge" but may I put it "to go on booze"? It is just that the second expression would be nice for a rhyme which I need. Can I say so in English?
    Thank you in advance.

    We might "go on a booze-up".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    not a teacher

    The phrase "to go (out) on the booze" is not uncommon in my experience, and the urge is not entirely unfamiliar to me either.
