How many beverages should I have on hand?
We suggest you allow for at least one beverage per person per hour for a 4 hour event. An important consideration is having plenty of water and non-alcoholic drinks on hand. This could mean a selection of bottled waters, both sparkling or plain plus juices and soft drinks.
Here is our guide to some popular drinks and appropriate serving amounts for a group of 50 people.
34 bottles - this should be a mix of reds and whites
4 cartons of cans
Water (if bottled)
