How many drinks should I plan for each guest?
So, you’re wondering how many drinks to plan for each of your guests, right?
Get that, it can be a bit of a guessing game!
As a general rule of thumb, you might want to count on each guest having about one to two drinks each hour.
Let’s say you’re planning to have a baby shower for 20 of your closest friends and family, and you expect the party to last about three hours.
Doing some quick math, that means you’d be looking at preparing between 60 and 120 drinks in total.
Sounds like a lot, but remember, that’s not all mocktails!
You’ll want a good mix of drinks.
A few pots of coffee, a selection of teas, some fizzy drinks, and of course, plenty of water.
Oh, and don’t forget your specialty mocktails!
But hey, these are just guidelines, every party is different.
On a hot day, folks might drink more to stay hydrated, or if your guests are more of the sipping type, they might drink less.
Also, just a friendly reminder, you’re going to need ice and somewhere to keep all these drinks cool!
Can I make the drinks ahead of time?
Yes, you can make many drinks ahead of time.
Making your drinks ahead of time is a great way to reduce stress on the day of your baby shower!
The “Pink Pacifier Punch” can be prepared a few hours in advance, excluding the ginger ale.
You can mix the pink lemonade, pineapple juice, coconut water, and grenadine and then store it in the fridge.
Just before serving, add the ginger ale to give it a fizzy kick, and then garnish with your lemon and pineapple slices.
As for the “Baby Bootie Bubble Fizz” and the “Stork’s Strawberry Surprise,” you can make a batch of the non-fizzy components ahead of time.
For the Bubble Fizz, combine the cranberry juice, grapefruit juice, lime juice, and simple syrup in a jug and store it in the fridge.
For the Strawberry Surprise, you can blend the strawberries and mix in the lemon juice and honey.
When it’s time to serve, add the soda water and ice to each glass, and pour over your pre-made mix.
This way, you keep the fizz intact and the drinks chilled!
What kind of glasses should I use?
The type of glass you use will depend on the type of drink you’re serving.
You’ll want to use smaller glasses for stronger drinks and larger glasses for lighter drinks.
For example, champagne flutes are perfect for mimosas, while margaritas are typically served in a short glass with a salted rim.
