When you plan a drinking party with friends one of the most important things is figuring how much alcohol that you are going to need. I mean it’s okay to have a little bit more than you actually need but it would be horrendous if you don’t have enough. This could very well spell the end of the party. So it is up to you as the host to figure out what you are going to do about the alcohol requirements. You need to make the calculations properly to ensure that you don’t get the number wrong. Get some paper before you start so that you can write everything down.
To start things off you need to iron out the details about the party itself. That is to say what type of drinking party is it going to be, how long do you plan on having the party to go on until etc. If are having a wine tasting party you might consider getting specific variants of wine depending on what you want to serve your guests, for an example that could just have a night of Moscato from quality white wine shop. Entirely up to you to decide. On the other hand if you are having a long drinking party you are going to need large quantities of alcohol. You need to calculate for that properly.
You can start on that by first making a list of people you are going to invite. Next to their name you should write how much alcohol they consume on average at a party according to your recollection. If you remember which type of alcohol they prefer that would also help as you would then know which ones you should get. For an example some people like beer whereas others like hard liquor in Singapore, either way though you won’t go wrong with having some beer handy. Anyhow once you have made the calculations you proceed to buying them. If you want more information as to how many servings an average bottle serves and such just do some quick research online and that should give you the answer.
Buying alcohol is not going to be enough though. Most people don’t really drink neat, for this reason you are going to need some mixers. Keep in mind though that some people prefer juice as opposed to soft drinks like coke as a mixer. Thus it would be a good idea to have a bit of both ready. Finally keep in mind that there may be a few friends who don’t really drink. You should make sure that there some drinks available for time as well. It’s what a good friend would do. All in all base your calculations based on the occasion and the people who are coming and you should be fine.
