Our general rule of thumb is 1.25 drinks per guest per hour. The nice thing about our wine list is we can work around your budget---currently we love the Charles Smith wines: great price point, local-ish and tasty tasty. The Charles Charles Cab/SyrahBlend is a favorite among the Opal 28 staff. Our other favorite is anything sparkling…. especially the Avissi Prosecco, “Avissi is a delectably fresh sparkling wine made from 100% Prosecco grown in Italy’s legendary Veneto region. In every glass, Avissi captures the very best of Italian style—it’s sexy and elegant, easygoing and friendly, delicious and delightful.” When it comes time to talk about your drink menu Opal 28 bartender extraordinaire Lani loves creating specialty champagne cocktails, punches, and twists on old classics. This is a great way to control the bar budget too by offering a mixed concoction sold by the gallon but prepared by the glass.
