Party Booze Planner
People usually have a rough idea of how much drink to buy for a party. Its OK to wing it if buying for a small gathering, but when the numbers are larger it pays to get the quantities right. This way you can set a proper budget and avoid oversupplying – or worse – running dry with a houseful of thirsty guests.
Wandsworth-based caterer Forkful Food is happy to let clients supply their own booze (and we don’t charge corkage). To help you on your way, we’ve put together this handy guide.
To calculate what drinks you’ll need for your drinks party, follow these simple steps:
- 1. Work out how much people will drink based on the length of the party
- 2. Decide what drinks you are going to offer
- 3. Multiply the number of guests x the number of drinks per head (eg. 40 guests x 5 drinks = 200 drinks), guesstimate what proportion of guests are likely to drink fizz/ wine/beer/spirits etc.
- 4. Look at the “How many drinks in a bottle” to calculate how many bottles of each type of drink to buy.
