Beverage Serving Guidelines

Here are some tips to help calculate your beverage needs.

  •   Figure 15 ice cubes per person for a 2 to 3 hour party.
  •   Figure 2 cups of punch per person.
  •   One keg of beer = 160 glasses.
  •   One gallon of wine = 16 (4 oz.) glasses.
  •   One liter of liquor = 20 drinks using a 1/5 oz. Jigger.
  •   Fill wine glasses one half to three quarters full.

Always serve food with alcohol and have non-alcoholic beverages available.
