If you want to serve mixed drinks in addition to beer and wine at your gathering, simply reduce the suggested amount of wine and beer in the drink calculator by 10%.

It is a little more complicated to recommend how many bottles of spirits you will need, because it depends on how many different cocktails you plan on serving.

We recommend preselecting 3 to 4 different cocktails and purchasing your spirits and mixes accordingly. The following information will help you organize a basic cocktail bar.
