Where to go from here?

As a novice home cocktail tinkerer new to the game, I seek your humble advice. I set forth at your mercy my current bar, in the hope that you might suggest a few items that could be acquired/substituted that would afford the maximum number of additional drinks--or maybe some essential ones--given what is already in stock. Many TIA.

Chartreuse (green)
Brandy (Raynal VSOP)
Gin (Aviation...nearly gone, what to try instead? Am in SEA, so like the idea of local Dry Fly)
Vodka (Crater Lake..OR local)
Rum (Barbancourt 5 Star; Gosling's Black Seal)
Bourbon (Maker's Mark)
Rye (Old Overholt)
Absinthe (Absente)
Maraschino (Luxardo)
Seagram's 7 (never touch it)
Vermouth (Dolin Rouge and Dry)
Lillet (Blanc)
Bitters (Peychaud's; Fee Bros. Orange; Anagostura)
Simple syrup (homemade)
Grenadine (Rose's)
