To be honest, I would stick with beer, wine and champagne.  If you add spirits, you also have to make sure you have lemons, limes, etc for cocktails, and if you have to provide it yourself that just sounds like a lot of work to me. ๐Ÿ™‚

That being said, I would get vodka, gin, and a scotch or whiskey.  Those are typically the most popular alcohols.  Or you could poll your friends/guests that you know are going to go for the liquor and see what they would most prefer.

I personally like any kind of whiskey, but I think rum covers the most bases. Vodka, of course, is a good choice. I’m doing vodka, rum, and bourbon, personally, because the men in my life will drink bourbon and beer all night. I’ll stay away from the liquor that night. I’m thinking bellinis all night for me.

I think vodka, whiskey, and rum are good ones. They cover a wide variety of drinks and seem to be the main alchohols used.

Having hard liquor makes it hard when you only want to have 1-2 options..Maybe stick with 1-2 “signature cocktails” instead?

I agree that only 1-2 options is on the smaller side. I’d either add at least 3 liquors or forgo them completely. Actually, my favorite idea is having two signature cocktails! But if you want my opinion on the best liquors-I would say vodka, rum and whiskey would be good!

You are thinking waaaay too hard!! Soda water/tonic for peopl who drink that with vodka, and on and on..you are going down a slippery slope!

What it comes down to is budget and what YOU want!

I like the 1-2 signature drink idea! And rum makes a lot of different types of drink!

If you don’t go with signature drinks, I think vodka and rum are the most popular and easily mixable

You are totally on the right track. No one is going to have more than a moment’s pang of dissapointment at not having their favorite drink available.

If you do have the mixers, though, let the bartender mix the drink at their discretion. If it is a hassle, empower him or her to say no, or if they are running low on diet coke and Aunt Doris will want another in 30 minutes. A good bartender will work it out.

I feel like you can’t just pick one drink unless you bring every single option. I can think of (and would delight in sampling) a zillion combos with vodka. If you have a signature drink, i’d go with vodka or rum. That way, people can also sneak by with mixing with sodas and juices from your bar’s tap if they dont’ want to drink the signature drink, but still want liquor.
