"Drink the Fat"

We are moving from the Great White North!

We've been married, what, 3 years now? It was a joyous day, made more joyous by the fact that we could supply our own alcohol at affordable prices. The problem is, we had a martini bar, which involved a vast variety of liqueurs. The other problem is, we've moved 4 times since then. Every time we pack a house, after I try to figure out when we acquired so much STUFF, I ask myself WHY I AM STILL MOVING 17 BOTTLES OF LEFTOVER CREME DE CACAO??

This time, have I wised up. My mission, which I have chosen to accept, is to Drink All Of The Random Liqueurs Before Moving Day. Oh yes, it will be done. The question is, just combine them all and hope mixed liqueurs end up as Long Island Iced Tea like liquor does, or take a sip of each every 2-3 hours for the next 3 days?

Here's what I have:

Peppermint Schnapps
Root Beer Schnapps
Creme de Cacao (in bulk)
Creme de Menthe
Melon Liqueur
Razzmatazz Raspberry Liqueur (side note: don't ever buy this)
Triple Sec
Butterscotch Schnapps
Irish Cream
Absinthe (less liqueur and more Please Let Me Live, kthxbai)

Another complication for how this all goes down, no pun intended, is that I'm also trying to empty our chest freezer. What pairs best with a bag of spinach and some freezer-burned Bagel Bites - a 2005 Root Beer Schnapps or a 2006 Frangelico?
