Mixologist Jim Meehan's Cocktail Party Tips
How many hors d'oeuvres do I serve for a cocktail party?
- Count six hors d'oeuvres per person, per hour.
How should I plan the menu?
- Balance between hot and cold, rich and light. Be sure to provide at least one vegetarian offering. And always choose a few make-ahead dishes so there's less to do on the day of the party.
How much wine do I need for a cocktail party?
- The rule of thumb is three glasses per person. So for a cocktail party of 20 people, that means 12 bottles.
