@mobjune25: How many guests do you have? How many are alcohol drinkers? How big are your serving glasses?

Excuse my calculations

1gal = 128 oz(fl)

..therefore 2gal= 256 oz(fl)

glasses are 10 oz(fl)

…with the assumption of each person having 4 drinks in that hour (I would want to try each of them!) and 150 people…

150(ppl)X10(oz glasses)= 1500(oz of drinks for all the people per drink if everyone had one of one type!)

1500/256= aprox 6 (a little less, but safer to round up than down in this instance)

So assuming every drink will be in a 2 gal dispenser (4 dispensers total) and that you have heavy drinkers (heavy enough to fill each cup once with each of the 4 different drinks) I would say you will be safe filling each dispenser 6 times. Ofcourse, I do think 4 drinks per person is a lot for an hour and If I were going to try the different drinks I would prob not fill my whole cup.. so I would say.. if you don’t care to have excess.. 5 times is sufficient 🙂

My guess would be the sangria and arnold palmers get hit the most, creamsicles next then blueberry. 

I would plan on 4 refills of the most, 3 of the creamsicle and 2 of the blueberry since it’s only for an hour and you have other options.
