    Default Party Bar/Beverage station : Suggestions on Stocking

    I am putting together a plan for a party bar at a party/bar b que. It is intended to serve about 75 people. about 2/3 of them drink alcohol and probably 85% of them will drink both nonalcoholic as well as alcoholic drinks. Also on a budget to only low and middle shelf drinks (as opposed to top shelf expensive sipping booze).

    Of particular concern is space concerns and a bartender with time/experience concerns (i.e. no blood mary's besides a time efficient vodka/bloody mary mix quick combo) and nonalcholic drinks. (i.e. if I make a non alcholic party punch what should I put in it?)

    Your suggestions, especially as to mixers and general time/cost/efficiency issues (do I have to have to hire a bartender at a party of this size?) Also good practices/places to purchase to get a good deal.

    Also I have an assortment of wines. Should I break out the whole assortment or start on the more mild wines first?

    Bartender?

    If it's outside, fill a kiddie pool with ice and bottles of beer with a few cheap wines.

    Don't spend money on booze unless you're willing to spend money. Which means a bartender.

    Or a margarita fountain.

    Ha ha. I like the kiddie pool idea. Nice INTP thinking outside the box. I got quite a few ice chests but that might be the ticket. I had some of my poorer friends agree to help with bar b que instead of present but then hired "professional bar b qer" with food service background (and some of his own serving dishes) so maybe they will stand in a half hour here and there. (I don't want the bartender soliciting for tips to keep the guests at ease)

    I say sodas, beers, and spiked punch.

    That should make it easy.

    As far as beer selection. I got some Bud and Bud Lite. I have a empty kegger I could fill but at this time and with this mixed crowd I think I will hold off and stick to cans and bottles.

    The ethnic makeup will be mostly white, Hispanic, Irish American. So I may add some Tecate/Corona, and Guinness to the mix (as well as some pyramid hefeweizen; note to self bring a bunch of limes or lemons to add to Tecate/Corona/Hefenweizen)

    There will be a fair amount of kids there too. I am a little worried about the spiked punch getting mixed up as fruit juice. If I could manage that concern spiked punch/homemade winecoolers and sangria would likely be on the menu.

    beer
    soft drinks/mixers/ice....
    A blender wouldn't be a bad thing either...
    this might sound stupid but a first aid kit just incase somebody cuts themself or; something. depends on how many and what they're like and what your budget is and stuff.
    I would say condoms but; I doubt it's one of those kind of partys.
