When you’re having a party, wedding, or a special event, and you need help determining what beverages to buy, and how much you’ll need for your guests, turn to our experienced and caring staff at Jewett’s Liquor. We have been helping customers get the products they need for events for over 55 years.
In that time, we have learned some valuable tips to help make sure your party guests never have an empty glass.
How Much Wine Should I Buy?
A general rule is to allow 2 glasses of wine per person for the first hour, and one glass of wine per person per every hour thereafter. So if you have 5 people in your party, you would need 10 glasses of wine the first hour, and another 5 glasses per hour thereafter.
|Bottle Size||# of Glasses|
|3 Liter Box||16|
|5 Liter Box||27|
It is also very important to remember that if the wine or liquor you’re serving is free, you run the risk of over serving your guests. It is helpful to pre-plan your strategy for dealing with someone who takes advantage of your generosity, and prevent any potentially dangerous incident from happening.
