I think the second option sounds pretty reasonable, since if everyone’s drinking, the average guest would get 4 cocktails before you hit $6,000. A oft cited rule of thumb for drinks is 1 per hour; going by that, you’d be covered under the second scheme for sure. However, if your guests aren’t beer and wine drinkers, you’ll end up paying a lot for alcohol that doesn’t get consumed. Under both schemes, are you getting reimbursed for untapped kegs and unopened wine? Also, will the bar shut down during dinner? Or could you not offer liquor during dinner? That would also help with the beer/wine/liquor consumption ratio.
