Planning for Your Liquor
Trying to figure out how much alcohol to get for your party can be a bit tricky. Ted Farrell from Haskells is here with the scoop on how to plan for it.
- Know your budget – what are you comfortable spending?
- Know your crowd – how many people do you expect and what are their ages? Consider the median age of your attendees.
- Know your menu – know what you’re serving first before you select the liquor.
- Length of event – how long is the event? Figure on one drink per person per hour. This balances out the more mature drinkers and the newly aged drinkers.
- What is your format – will liquor be on the table or served?
- How much to buy:
- 1 bottle liquor = 24 shots
- 1 sixteen gallon keg of beer = 140 bottles
- 1 bottle of wine = 5 pours
- 1 case of wine = 60 servings
Ted suggests the following wines that he says will please everyone!
~ Angel’s Landing Pinot $11.99
~ Mud Pie Chardonnay (bogo) $18.99
