Would "there was nothing to drink" be acceptable??

Yes. It's been accepted since July 5.

Ok I've been thinking about this for a little bit and I am very certain that you could have "There was no drinks" as well like you could say i went to a party and there were no drinks or there was no drinks am I wrong in this or what?

"drinks" is multiple, while "was" is singular as far as I know. So there is no way you could say "There was no drinks".
