    FREE MARGARITAS!!!! If they want something else, tough noogies! Could you swing margaritas and beer or wine? A choice is always nice. Do margaritas go with your food?

    One free booze option is better than paying for them, as far as I am concerned

    I would prefer the free margaritas. But a lot of people might not like margaritas. Have you considered having your “free drink” be something like red & white wine? More people might like that and you could pick a very cost effective but delicious white wine & red wine.

    Honestly, I prefer margaritas any time, but that’s me. Is there anyway you could add a keg to that option for those who don’t like margaritas? That way you have a signiture drink and also an option for those who don’t like magaritas, and still get to keep your bar costs pretty low.

    PS- I think it’s a great idea if you are having a cash bar to do something like this- it shows your guests that you are happy to have them and are trying to provide for them, but you are also offering an alternative (cash bar) so they can buy something else if they don’t like what you are providing!

    We did a keg–one keg for 120 guests (in addition to lots of other booze) and it was like $150. Most liquor outlets are open on a sunday, but the groomsmen will likely have to pick it up Saturday. I know ours did. Then we returned the tapper and barrel on Snday. It was really cost effective.

    So the margarita idea sounds kinda neat and I think I’d lean in that direction…. but there might be otherways to also include beer and/or wine without it being expensive.  Or margarita and a keg, just cause the sweetness of margaritas bothers some people.  And personally I’m a fan of wine in the box, though maybe there’s more presentable ways to serve it.

    I’m the only one voting for a cash bar. I do like margaritas, but can only stomach about 1/2 of one because they’re so sweet/strong. I would personally rather pay for my own beer or vodka soda.

    I’m assuming you are serving plenty of food? That’s a strong drink that needs a sidekick!!

    We had a margarita machine at my graduation party and it was a huge hit!  Of course, but I have a lot of alcoholic friends, so maybe that’s just us.
