23 Jun How to Serve Up Alcohol-Free Coolers for Non-Drinkers — 30 Tips and Ideas!” Part 9
For any Weddings, holiday gatherings, conferences—a common occurrence at any such events 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!)
Tips for alcohol-free galas, weddings, holiday events, and parties
Thankfully, there are plenty of options beyond serving sparkling grape juice in lieu of alcoholic beverages. Wow guests with these ideas for sober social events:
- Give them something to talk about.
Host a trivia competition where each table becomes a team. Throughout the reception, have someone call out trivia questions—related to the bride and groom, or not! — and encourage the teams to brainstorm the answers. Send the winning team home with a prize.
- Pick a unique venue that puts the emphasis on the experience rather than the alcohol.
Rent a roller-skating rink, bowling alley, tennis court, or paintball area. Charter a sailboat and crest waves across the bay. Gather at an amusement park and ride until you’re all dizzy. Sprawl on picnic blankets and take hayrides at an apple orchard—and let everyone help make fresh apple cider to bottle and bring home. Putting the focus on the venue or activity gives guests less opportunity to miss having a drink in-hand.
