"Thank you so very much for your help and that of Brandon's last Friday. The recommendations you made for the 'Sangria at Sunset' party we hosted worked very well. The Sangria was a hit! Your patience and attention were greatly appreciated. In an ever increasingly competitive environment, this type of customer service will continue to set you guys apart. Thank you again!" ~Diane
At Joe Canal's, our trained and talented staff can assist you in picking the beverages for any type and size party you could imagine. The chart below represents some general guidelines, but always talk to us for customized party planning!
This chart represents the approximate amount of liquor recommended based on the number of people/guests. The anticipated time of the reception is usually for a one hour cocktail hour and a four hour reception.
The amount may vary due to the type of crowd (older vs. younger), the time of the day and the weather conditions. For example, more beer and white spirits, such as vodka and gin, will be consumed during the summer months.
Typically, a caterer will supply mixers and/or setups, but in the event they do not, we will be glad to assist you in picking them out.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The following chart provides two common bottle sizes (for most items shown below) with regard to the suggested amount of liquor that is recommended, based on the number of people/guests. Shown below are the suggested amounts in 1 Liter bottle and 1.75 Liter bottle sizes for most liquor items and other suggested sizes for wine, champagne and beer. Under each column (for the number of people/guests) you'll see two numbers; the first number represents the number of bottles recommended if purchasing 1 Liter-sized bottles. The second number, in BOLD, represents the number of bottles recommended if purchasing 1.75 Liter-sized bottles.
If you have any questions, feel free to stop in to Joe Canal's, and one of our associates would be happy to help you!
