Top 5 Drinks to Have for a Party

When you are in the midst of planning a party, you have many decisions to make. You’ll have to figure out how many people you’re having, who you want to invite, what food you’ll serve your guests, and whether to hire a professional bartender. A professional bartender lets you relax and enjoy your party instead of worrying about your guests over-imbibing. There are many drinks your bartender can concoct at a party ranging from simple to slightly more complex. Read on to find out the top five drinks you should have for a party.


No matter what type of party you’re having, it’s a safe bet to provide beer for your guests. Consider having one or two choices, such as a dark and light beer so that you suit the tastes of those partaking. Serving locally crafted beer is an excellent touch and provides a conversation starter for your guests.


Not everyone enjoys beer, so it’s a good idea to have an alternative. Wine is a great option to have on hand, whether or not you are serving a full meal. Choose drinkable varieties of red and white wines, and if you’re celebrating, consider having sparkling wine or champagne available for a toast.

Gin and Tonic

This simple, refreshing drink is a staple for spring and summer get-togethers. Since there are just two ingredients (plus a lime garnish), it’s easy for your bartender to mix individually for each guest who orders one.

Vodka and Soda

Another two-ingredient drink, a vodka and soda is a great choice for any type of party. Vodka tends to be one of the most popular liquors at parties, and you can have other mixers on hand as well as soda water.


Scotch is a perennial favorite among drinkers, and can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or with a splash of water or soda.
