Party And Event Planning Guide: How Much Alcohol Will My Guests Drink

August 13th, 2011 by Craig Mullins

How Much Alcohol Will My Guests Drink?

A rough estimate of how much people will drink is two alcoholic drinks the first hour and one each additional hour. Of course, if you’re at a frat party it might be quite a lot more.

If your party is 4 hours and you have 100 guests that would be 5 drinks per person for a total of 500 drinks for the event.

What will they drink?

Every event is different. For a BBQ your guests will most likely drink a lot of beer. A New Years Eve party would include champagne and lots of hard alcohol/spirits, while an event like a wedding or fancy celebration would mostly likely run you a glass of champagne for each guest for the toast. Make sure to provide alternatives for non drinking guests.
