If a party host wants to inebriate her guests, she'll serve them many alcoholic drinks. In other words, she'll try to get them drunk.
Use the verb inebriate to describe what happens when someone or something intoxicates a person. If you realize that your lemonade is inebriating you, you probably accidentally ordered an alcoholic drink that tastes like lemonade. You can also use inebriate to describe something that's beautiful or thrilling: "There is nothing like watching the sun rise over the mountains to inebriate me." The Latin root, inebriatus, simply means "to make drunk."
