TCL Party Planning

When planning a party, you may wonder how much bubbly should you get, or do you have enough wine for everyone?  How many servings are there in a bottle anyway?  Ted Farrell from Haskell’s is here to clear all that up for us with his party planning tips.

Things to consider:

  1. Length of time and time of day
  2. Menu and format
  3. Attendees
  4. Budget

Servings Per Bottle:

  • 1 bottle of wine = 5 glasses
  • 1 liter bottle of spirits = 17 (1.5 ounce servings)

Amount of Alcohol Needed:

  • Length of time X Drinks per hour X Attendees = Amount Needed

Just like a book, you shouldn't judge wine by it's label. It's what's inside the bottle that counts. But sometimes, a winery masters both. In this episode of Twin Cities Live, Ted talks about a few vineyards that have a great tasting wine AND a well-designed bottle. 

Here are the wines mentioned in the segment: 


 

Fall is in the air! Have you noticed the weather getting cooler and crisper? With the start of the season comes all of our favorite autumnal traditions.

Here are the wines and beers mentioned in the segment: 

Recipe: Pomme-osa (aka Apple Cider Mimosa)
