1 drink per person per hour. But you have to do the volume math on that one…

Assuming 1 drink per person per hour, you need 115 drinks for the entire cocktail hour. Each drink is at most 9oz. You’ll need 115*9oz=1035oz = about 8 gallons (128oz/gallon).

If you get a 10gal drink dispenser you’ll have about 25% extra. Really, its probably closer to 30-40% extra since people aren’t going to fill the glass entirely.
