What do you mean by mixed drink? Several types of hard alcohol with mixers, or some kind of pre-mixed thing?

Wendy4 :  usually caterers handle this as they have a good idea of average consumption. Please tell me you’re not self catering a wedding for 150. Also… I’d add a red + white wine. Not everyone likes beer or mixed drinks.

A standard hard liquor pour is about 2 oz & a standard beer pour is 12-16 oz. 128 oz in a gallon. I’d plan for 3 drinks per person (or more). Idk if this helps at all.

Yep, exactly. About 4 glasses of wine per 750 ml bottle. I was just going off the beer & mixed drink she mentioned.

If you have a Costco by you I’d suggest buying more than you think you’ll need and then returning the rest. They will accept back any unopened bottles! My cousin and his wife did this and they saved a ton of money on their bar!
