I’m familiar with a lot of expressions for drinking to excess, whom not to drink with —Parthians and elephants, and the usefulness of wine, but I can’t find anything with the meaning of this English expression. Suggestions?
 

Agrippa

Civis Illustris
Perhaps

aliquem bibendo superare
 

Agrippa

How about

"aliquem bibendo humi prosternere"

humi:
to the ground (i. e. under the table)
prosterno, prosternere: to prostrate

Thanks everyone. I'm looking for an idiomatic Latin phrase similar to how the English phrase is an idiom and not necessarily literal.
