    I don't think I've ever heard that exact expression, but "sauce," in this case, could mean either alcohol (liquor) or just general trouble.

    origin I don't know, but in my experience it means: to get drunk, hammered, wasted, 3 sheets to the wind, pissed
    we don't really use it here in Canada but I've heard it quite a bit in the U.K.
