Biggest Stressor: diy Bar

Doxie Mom, on May 20, 2021 at 2:52 PM Posted in Planning 0 3
Hey guys my date is getting close! June 5th! We are getting close and the biggest stressor is making sure I will have enough alcohol/mix ins. It will be about 6 hours (including cocktail) and about 100 people.

So far we have 1 bud light keg1 blue moon keg4 half gallons of whiskey4 half gallons of rum6 half gallons of vodka
Along with various mixers. Do you think this will be enough? I’ve tried to look at alcohol calculations but they are confusing and it’s so hard to get an idea.
How many people did you have, and how much did you buy?

    What do your guests drink? Every crowd is different. What do you plan to serve? Will guests be able to order anything from the available alcohol and mixers or are there specific drinks only?

    Ask your guests what they prefer and then go to a local liquor warehouse. The employees there are trained to help you figure out what you need.

    Make sure you have non alcoholic drinks too because not everyone will drink beer/wine/vodka.

    This is the drinks calculator I am going to use to base my purchases off of. You know your guests best so some slight adjustments to the different drink ratios might be needed (for example, if one family only drinks wine and drinks a LOT of it). Hope that helps! I know you said drink calculators are confusing for you.

    I would also add, if you include some non-alcoholic drink options that are not soda that might help you feel more comfortable. Lemonade, coffee, sweet tea, etc. are all non-alcoholic drinks someone might be happy to choose if you run out of their alcohol of choice.

    I was originally going to do this! I was going to buy beer and wine then have two pre-made signature cocktails. I think I remember that it was at least 1-2 drinks per hour per person. So what I would do is look over your guest list and try to decipher who will be drinking and won't be drinking and go from there. Supplying alcohol for 100 people seems tricky. Best of luck to you!!
