Unfortunately, many hosts don’t understand the gravity of the last sentence. This explains why so many college house parties only have one type of drink… beer.
Here are some examples of how you can add variety to your party
Have a variety of drinks ready at your next party. Providing your guests with a flotilla of drink options to make them happy.
