DaT's Q & A

Q: We would like to have an open bar at our event, but we are not financially prepared to do so. What should we do?

A: Having an open bar is a wonderful and COSTLY item for your event. If you are on a fixed budget, one option could be to offer your guest a signature mixed drink as oppose to an open bar. Not only is it cheaper, but it can harmonize with your color palette as well as be a way of including one of your favorite drinks into your event!

If you talk to your bartender in advance, he or she can create a tailor-made cocktail or whip up a distinction on a classic favorite. To add a personalized touch, name your special drink. It could be called that special name you have for your significant other or it could be named after your favorite team. The possibilities are endless!

Make sure to let your bartender know your flavors as well as your price range. Choose liquor that is a step above well, but don’t feel compelled to indulge in top shelf.
**DaT’s Tip: Be sure to have appealing non-alcoholic options for the under 21 crowd, non alcoholic drinkers, or the over-served.
