PARTY PLANNING

What's on the calendar? Whether it's a simple dinner for your favorite couple, game day with a dozen pals or a formal event for 100 or more, you'll need to decide which wine, beer and spirits to serve!

Count on guests consuming two drinks in the first hour of your event and one drink during each following hour. Are you serving wine, beer and spirits? The general rule of thumb is 50 percent of your guests will prefer wine, 30 percent will prefer beer and 20 percent will prefer mixed drinks.

Simply offering wine and beer? Plan on 60 percent of your guests drinking wine and 40 percent drinking beer.

Use our easy drink calculator to determine how much wine, beer and spirits you’ll need for your gathering.
