Or hire a bartender.
Hiring a bartender keeps you from having to spend the night shaking up drinks and frees you up to have more fun. “I think that people shouldn’t be scared to bring in help,” says McGuire. “To find one, you just call great caterers and ask who on their staff might be good for the gig. It introduces another personality into the mix — in New York, it’s often an actor — and they usually know how to break the ice. We’ve had times where it's been as little as $75 bucks for an hour and a half (you tip on top of that), and totally made the party easier for everyone.”
