Full Answer

If the refreshments also include coffee, the party requires less punch. Guests consume coffee at approximately the same rate as punch. One approach is to plan for 6 gallons of coffee and 6 gallons of punch for a two-hour gathering. Prepare some of the punch beforehand, and freeze it in an ice ring to chill the remainder for serving without diluting the drink.
