1. The Barkeeper
It isn’t necessary to enlist the skills and services of a professional bartender unless that is your desire. However, it is best to have someone with a bit of bar skills and drink knowledge to oversee this area. Consider asking friends of the family to suggest someone that is really good with creating mixed drinks, shots or whatever the served beverages may consist of for the evening. Select someone with a sense of authority (over 21) to politely see to it that guests aren’t overindulging in the alcoholic delights.
