Alcohol can be one of the most important ingredients for your party. It’s the social lubricant that ignites a crowd and brings cheer, openness, and conviviality. Your specific needs depend on the beverages you should consider. Wine and beer are safe bets; if your crowd is female friendly, wines and coolers make an excellent option. A bartender or even a cocktail-knowledgeable friend can make a world of difference. Hard alcohol including spirits and high-proof blends can add a dignified touch to any event, although they carry more risk for the average drinker and can require more supervision. Keep the party safe and make sure people do not drink and drive!
