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:
- Go semi-dry.
Skip liquor and have only wine or beer.
- Make alcoholic drinks the option, rather than the norm.
Create a menu of non-alcoholic drinks and allow guests to add a shot rather than automatically including spirits.
- Prepare before meeting with the caterer or bartender.
When signing on a caterer, stick to your request for equal quality non-alcoholic drinks, and don’t settle for boring options. If the bartender is creating a signature cocktail for the event, make sure they create a coinciding mocktail.
