Meetings & Conventions: Short Cuts July 1999
Hospitality suites have one thing in common: a bar. How can you
be sure yours is well-stocked? Don James, director of catering and
convention services at the Ritz-Carlton San Juan (Puerto Rico),
recommends having the following items on-hand:
• Wine, both red and white
• Beer, in bottles, both imported and domestic
• Hard liquor, including bourbon, Scotch, gin and vodka
• Brandy and cognac
• Soft drinks
• Mixers and garnishes including tonic, club soda, fruit juices,
Worcestershire and Tabasco sauces, bitters, vermouth, cocktail
onions, olives, and lemon and lime slices.
• Dry snacks, such as pretzels, chips and nuts.
How much to order? "Figure on 2.5 drinks per person, per hour,"
