28 May “How to Serve Up Alcohol-Free Coolers for Non-Drinkers — 30 Tips and Ideas!” Part 1
For any Weddings, holiday gatherings, conferences—a common occurrence at any such event is — Alcohol-based drinks and Cocktails! However, there are about one in four people who are either trying to reduce their drinking or maybe not belong to the alcohol-favoring population. Nearly half of the world’s adult population is supposedly not consuming any forms of alcohol at all!! It’s important to plan for the non-drinkers at your events and offer them more options than water, soda, and coffee. Whether you’re planning a wedding with no bar, need beverage options for guests who don’t drink alcohol, or want to create a fully inclusive conference environment—we’ve got you covered with tips and ideas for alcohol-free events.
How to Serve Up Alcohol-Free Coolers for Non-Drinkers
Keep non-drinkers in mind while planning your event
The first thing you must take up is deciding whether your event will be entirely alcohol-free, or maybe include a tiny bit of alcohol (i.e., for a toast or during cocktail hour), or if you’ll allow guests to BYOB. (that’s Bring Your Own Booze, by the way)
Once you settle on the criteria for alcohol at the event, keep these things in mind as you plan:
- It’s absolutely acceptable to skip boozy drinks at an event, whether it’s because of personal preference, client choice, budgetary constraints, venue restrictions, or religious reasons.
- If the event isn’t fully dry, ensure non-drinking guests know they have options. Every event, whether there’s an open bar or simply a champagne toast, should have easy-access, delicious, non-alcoholic options beyond club soda and water.
- Skip games that require guests to drink: It puts the pressure on, and guests who choose not to drink may feel they need to explain themselves. Bridal showers, weddings, birthday celebrations, retirement parties—no matter the occasion, respect your guests’ choices.
