Bar Calculator – How much liquor, wine, beer and champagne?

by admin on September 7, 2011

Winebarrel.com’s fabulous Bar Calculator asks you how many guests and what level of service you want (economy, basic or premium) and then provides comprehensive data on what type of liquor/wine/mixers, size of bottle, how many bottles, suggested brand and approximate price.

If your preferences lean towards only serving wine or a champagne toast, the following suggested serving sizes:

* Dinner wines and champagne: 3 to 3 1/2 ounces per person.
* Appetizer and dessert wines: 2 to 2 1/2 ounces per person

* One case of 12 (4/5 quart) bottles of champagne will yield about 100 glasses or will provide 4 to 5 servings for 20 to 25 guests. Five cases to 100 guests is the usual rule.  Champagne is best served chilled at 40 degrees.

Suggested appetizer wines: Sherry, dry Vermouth, dry Port
Dessert wines: Port, muscatel, Tokay, Champagne (sweet), Sherry (cream), Madeira (sweet), Sauterne, Marsala, Malaga
