One fifth of liquor will make about 17 – 1.5 ounce drinks; a quart about 21 drinks; a bottle of table wine contains about five to six servings. Remember, moderation should be the keynote; you wouldn’t want your guests not to enjoy your home and carefully-prepared food. The following is merely a guide. There’s no need to be socially embarrassed should you decide to eliminate or reduce some of the liquid spirits offered.
It is always a cordial gesture to ask your guest if they would like a drink and then mix or pour their preference. Never insist. We would also recommend that you ask them to help themselves to refills; a good host or hostess always exercises moderation toward guests. Traffic jams can be avoided by locating the bar away from the hors d’oeuvres serving area and kitchen (as the latter is usually the food preparation and clean-up area).
Liquors / Wines
A well-stocked bar should satisfy most guests’ flavor preferences. You should plan to serve at least one brand of Scotch, whisky (Canadian and Irish would be ideal!), vodka, gin, rum, and tequila. In the wine category, have a dry white and red on hand as well as a sherry. It is common today for people to consume a wine or sherry instead of the traditional “cocktail.” Cordials have become popular as well and should be considered on your buying list.
Determine the number of guests you plan to invite and the likely number of those who will attend. This is the key to deciding how much of each spirit and/or wine you will need. Cocktail parties are generally the easiest type to give, as they are casual and friendly. There can also be a well defined beginning and end.
