While the easiest way to provide alcoholic drinks is to ask your guests to bring whatever they want to drink.
You can then provide bottled water, and other non-alcoholic drinks.
If you want to provide it all, go to a party planner calculator at
Enter the number of guests and length of party time (in hours). The calculator will tell you what you need and about how much it will cost.
Another suggestion is to make nice Winter-Spiced Red Wine Sangria. The Basics of Sangria include Red Wine, Brandy, Grand Manier, Other Season Fruit Juices and Fruits such as Oranges,
lemons, limes, apples, pears, cherries, pomegranates, etc. Make it the day or evening before the party so the juices can marinate. Don’t add the fruit until about an hour before serving. Tip: You can purchase frozen pitted red cherries from Trader Joes for about $2.99
