    I think Vodka is the most versatile. At least for me, I don’t drink that much, I could name several vodka drinks, but know nothing with gin or whiskey. 

    Edit: I think you just added rum to the poll. It’s my second choice!

    Vodka is in a lot of girly drinks.  I’d have all available so everyone has a choice.

    I agree, vodka is the most versatile.  But I prefer rum.  I am a rum gal!!

    I’m a huge whisky lover, but I know that’s not the norm. Vodka is probably going to satisfy the most people.

    It is between rum and vodka to me, although I mainly just stick with beer.

    I chose vodka, but I think it really depends on your guest list…  (As mentioned above, you may get a few vodka votes, because many of us ladies like our vodka).  We just had our wedding on Saturday and had all 4 available.  We definitely went through more whiskey than the others, but we had a few big rye drinkers.  The gin was barely touched, so I wouldn’t choose that one if you’re just going for the one.  Something else to think about, not sure if it applies: We also wanted to have limited choices at our bar, initially, but decided to add to our bar menu.  If you’re buying your own alcohol, hard liquor is actually less expensive per drink than a bottle of beer or glass of wine (in many/most cases).  If you live somewhere where you’re able to take back any unopened/unused liquor, it might be beneficial to have more hard liquor avaiable (if that makes sense).  Additional side note: We went through a ton of beer, also. (More than twice what the liquor/beer store recommended).

    I’m a Whiskey girl!  But if I can’t have whiskey, I’d go with rum.

    I think vodka is good because it mixes with most things well.

    I would go whiskey, especially if it’s Bourbon.  That’s what went the fastest at our wedding!

    After Beer & Wine, they say that Vodka & Rum are the most popular alcoholic beverages in the world… one being more popular in the Northern Hemisphere (Vodka) and the other in the Southern (Rum).  Both of them offer up great versatility.

    If you can only go with one, I’d choose Vodka.  As the others have said, there are a lot of great drinks to be made, because vodka can be mixed with just about anything !!  So the ladies can have their Girly Drinks, the new drinkers White Russians (with Milk) and the “older folks” their Bloody Marys / Bloody Caesars (if you are Cdn) or Screwdrivers, and the hard core drinkers have their Martinis, or can find countless other things to mix the Vodka with, or just drink it straight.

    IMO way more versatile than Rum… because Vodka for the most part only comes in “one format”.  Rum drinkers seem to have their preferences… White, Amber, Dark… so more difficult to please everyone from the get go

    Hope this helps,

    PS… Great mixers with Vodka… Milk – OJ – Pineapple Juice – Papaya Juice – Cranberry Juice – Tomatoe Juice – Clamato Juice – Coke – Seven Up – Gingerale – Lemonade etc.
