It’s almost June and that means that you’re probably dusting off the grill and preparing some epic outdoor get-togethers. But barbecuing is one of the easier things on the to-do list for a backyard shindig. One of the harder things to gauge is how much booze you need for the bar! And I’m just going to come out and say it… nobody is going be happy unless there are enough drinks to go around. So, do yourself a favor and print out my (bare-minimum) essential list below and then check out today’s beautiful outdoor wedding for inspiration. Oh yeah, and feel free to send a Backyard BBQ invitation to your favorite food blogger!

  1. 2 – 4 bottles of Pinot Noir
  2. 2 – 4 bottles of Riesling
  3. 4 – 6 cases of craft beer
  4. 1 bottle of Kentucky Bourbon
  5. 1 bottle of Gin
  6. 1 bottle of seltzer water
  7. 1 bottle of Coca Cola
  8. 1 bottle of berry juice (i.e. blackberry, pomegranate)
  9. 1 cup of lemon juice
  10. 1 cup of lime juice
  11. Assortment of seasonal fresh fruit
  1. Set up the glasses and let your guests at it! They’ve got all the ingredients for a variety of summery drinks and refreshing fare.
