A full bar would be stocked with the two to three types of beers, red wine, white wine, scotch, vodka, rum, gin, tequila and basic mixers. Champagne & prosecco is optional!
For mixers, a bare minimum of water, coke, sprite, ginger ale, club soda, coconut water and juices. Other items you can include is LLB, tonic water, and other juices. If you’re serving cocktails, you may also need cocktail mixers, syrups and garnishes such as, lime wedges, maraschino cherries, mint, flowers, salt, etc.
Be sure to serve plenty of water and consider options for your non-alcoholic drinkers.
Yes!! Have a signature cocktail menu with 2-3 special drinks; something like classic mojitos, margaritas and a good tequila or have your bartender go wild and make something on the spot!
If you wanted the convenience of someone who can source all the drinks you need even if it’s a specific wine or alcohol in significant quantities, we have relationships with all the major manufacturers & distributors of beer, wines, spirits and mixers. We can source all these items at competitive pricing for our clients’ convenience.
But if you would like to search & provide your own alcohol, groceries and liquor stores are great options. They are convenient, and while they may or may not keep large quantities on hand you could more or less get what you need.
Well, if we supply the drinks, you’ll get a consignment facility whereby you’ll only be billed for what you consume otherwise you may have to “guestimate” when you’re purchasing from your local supplier. If we provide the drinks, the rule is “if it’s sealed and suitable for sale, we’ll take it back.”
If you intend to serve alcohol to your guests at your event, you’ll need to hire someone to replace you as the “host”. Hiring a bartender maybe a better bet! Besides, your family and friends would want to have you at your event, not seeing you stand behind a bar slinging drinks!
