Turn Your Living Room into a Cocktail Lounge—on a Budget
Glass or plastic? White or red? And how can you make sure you don't run out of ice? Here's how to stock a bar without going broke.
Do I Need Fancy Juices and Sodas?
No, but you do need the basics: 2 quarts each of store-brand orange juice and cranberry juice should be fine for up to 35 guests. You should also have small bottles of lemon and lime juice. For every 35 guests, have 6 liters each of club soda or seltzer, cola, diet cola and lemon-lime soda, and 4 liters each of ginger ale and tonic.
