Any bachelor party is a special occasion, and that means it’s time for the best drinks. If you’re the best man planning a party for the groom, then you’re going to need to know what drinks should be on offer at the party, no matter where it will be held. Will you go for a high end Scotch Whisky, or make it a craft beer night? There are plenty of options, and as long as you have an idea of the tastes and preferences of the group in attendance, then you should be able to choose a few drinks from this list to make it the perfect party.
Mix and match, or make it a single style theme – the choice is yours with these best drinks for a bachelor party.
Wine – For a Classy Bachelor’s Dinner Party
Wine might not be the first thing you think of when it comes to a bachelor party, but it’s actually become increasingly popular over the years, and it can add a touch of class to the event. Remember, the dark red wines are most appropriate if served with red meat, and a lighter Pinot Noir wine would be better with pork, chicken, and game.
White wine is best for fish and shellfish. After the meal, if you want to make things extravagant, then go with mid to high-end champagne such as the popular Moet and Chandon, or the more expensive Dom Perignon. G.H. Mumm is another highly popular and high quality champagne that would be perfect at a bachelor’s celebration.
Whisky – For Discerning Drinkers
If you’re going to serve Whisky, then make sure you go for the right variety. Unless everyone in attendance is a fan, then avoid expensive Scotch Whisky. Scotch is something of an acquired taste, and might not be appreciated by everyone at a bachelor party. Instead, go for either a blended Scotch Whisky, a blended Irish Whiskey (such as Jamesons), or even a classy American Whiskey such as Gentleman Jack, or a blended Canadian Club from north of the border. If you’re making it a cocktail or mixed drink night, then opt for dry ginger ale or classic cola as your Whisky mixer.
If the groom and the party are fans of a good Scotch, then go for a single malt, and if you really want to celebrate, then go for an aged Glenmorangie or Glenfiddich.
Beer – Endless Choices
When it comes to beer, you will have a hard time deciding, but maybe that could make for a great night, tasting different varieties of craft and macro brews. Almost every guy loves beer, and those that don’t have probably just not had a chance to try the right brew. There are literally tens of thousands of different beers produced around the world, so the best advice would be to get some different varieties and make a game or a night out of tasting and rating them all. Some names that you should look out for on the beer scene are Arizona Wilderness Brewing Co (USA), Firestone Walker Brewing Co (USA), Coopers (Australia), Maine Beer Company (USA), and Framboos (Belgium). If you’re having trouble finding any of these, then just get a recommendation from the knowledgeable folks at your local liquor store.
The best drinks will bring out the best of the party, just remember to choose wisely and drink responsibly.[Image Credit]
