I would imagine 2-3 drinks per person.  Estimate one bottle of champagne could make 8 champagne cocktails, each bottle of wine is 4 generous glasses, and add 2 bottles of vodka along with your mixers.  That should be plenty.

@Katekahl:  I worked at a  brunch spot that does unlimited mimosas/bloody marys. If they do mimosas it’s about 3, bloody marys are 2 and other drinks if not doing the alcohol is typically 2 for juice, milk or water. They give about 1/4-1/3 of alcohol in the glass so about 8 per bottle of champagne but maybe sub in presecco as many prefer that or 12-18 per vodka. id aay the average is 3:1 for champagne compared to Vodka

Love mimosas/bloody marys… just save yourself the stress and premake the marys, and do a mimosa bar so people can do it themselves… you should be able to relax!!

I found an amazing recipe on pinterest… I wasn’t wowed by the idea at the time, but I had the ingredients at my house and brought it to a family get together… HUGE hit!  Magnum bottle of white wine (pinot grig or sauv blanc), 1 can of frozen lemonade, 1 liter of sprite… somewhere between white sangria and a shandy but with a little fizz…  I couldn’t believe how fast it went- they made me run out and buy more supplies 🙂  You can just double/triple the recipe in equal parts if you need a lot, and its cheap, easy and yummy!

May I also suggest you have grapefruit juice on hand? I know I always go for a Greyhound (grapefruit and vodka) at brunch. Maybe some of your guests would appreciate it? 🙂


Sorry!!!! I know this doesn’t answer your question and just adds more for you to buy – I just had to float the idea to you.
