Party Math:

Throwing a party is all fun and games until you run out of booze. Here’s some basic math to keep you on everyone’s nice list. There are also some pretty good drink calculator tools out there.

Assuming you are pouring four glasses per bottle of wine, estimate one bottle per hour for every two guests. One liter of liquor will typically produce 16 (2-ounce) cocktails. Assume two cocktails per guest per hour.
