Okay, so, the majority of my guests do not drink (it’s a religious thing) so, taking this into consideration, plus budgeting, I decided a signature cocktail would be a good way to go! However, I don’t know how many I should prepare for! There won’t be more than 90 people drinking, how many individual cocktails should I have prepared?
Thanks for the help!

I would love to help! Can you tell me how long is the event? What other soft drinks will be served? What is your guest count, adults vs children? It sounds like you are being very thoughtful of your guests tastes and they will be very grateful for that!

It’s really hard to guess how many you’d need, and totally depends on your guests’ drinking moods and whether they like the drink you picked. I’d recommend having a bartender on hand to be able to make the signature coctail on the fly. That way you won’t overspend on more alcohol than you need, and they’ll be able to make more if your initial supply runs out. If possible, you should see if they can have a non-alcoholic version of the coctail available for those who do not drink, that still looks the same, so they don’t feel left out. If you can’t have a bartender, then maybe plan for two signature drinks per drinker, or have a signature punch that can easily be refilled on the fly.

I have a hard time decidng this as well- I wish I could put something on the reception card so I can have an idea… I don’t know how to figure it out!

Thanks for all the help guys! Here are some answers to your questions!
I’m not sure what the exact guest count will be. I’m still in the budgeting phase! =) But, I know that I want the reception to last about 4 hours. Also, like I said, at most, I’ll have 90 guests who drink. I wasn’t planning on serving soft drinks but tea and water instead.
A non-alcoholic version of the cocktail sounds great, jenbrandner! That way all my guests can have something fun and bubbly to toast with!
I’ll have to try out a few things with the idea of a bartender, though. I’m not sure whether one would cost or save me money…
