How Much Ice?

Have you ever been completely off target when it comes to estimating how much ice you needed for an event? Most of the time you under-estimate your ice demands.


The last thing you want is an angry party guest with a warm drink.

As a good rule of thumb, we recommend about two pounds of ice per person if you are hosting an event that does not have a lot of mixed cocktails. If your event will have mostly mixed cocktails, we recommend between three and five pounds of ice per person. Please note, these are just general guidelines.
