Having a party and want to do a classic Champagne toast? Honestly, what is better than celebratory bubbles? To make sure you know how much Champagne for a toast to go around, you'll need to do some basic math.

How Much Champagne for a Toast?

Raising a glass of bubbly in appreciation or honor of something/someone is a jovial gesture that will never go out of fashion. So if you've got something to toast to, great!

Now you need to figure out just how much Champange you need for your toast.

  • A standard pour of Champagne is 4 to 5 ounces.
  • Plan on a standard 750mL bottle of Champagne serving 4-5 people. That's a standard size pour plus a little bit extra for each person.
  • If you have an intimate gathering and think you'll be serving up round two, plan on half a bottle per person.

How Many Bottles of Champagne for a 50-Guest Toast?

For a larger group of 50 people, you'll need a minimum of 10 bottles if you're using the standard 750 mL size.

A Champagne toast for a large group is a perfect time to break out a magnum or other jumbo size. If you can get your hands on one of these fun-sized bottles, divide the ounces by five to figure out just how many people you can serve from one bottle. Keep in mind that for each 750 mL of Champagne a bottle contains, it has about 25 ounces (so a magnum, which holds 1500 mL of wine, will have around 50 ounces of wine or 10 servings). So if you have a 50-guest toast, you could use 10 standard bottles, 5 magnums, or 3 double magnums (with some left over). You should probably also have a few bottles of something nonalcoholic and fizzy on hand so you can include guests who don't want alcohol.

Toasting in Style

Even if you have a head count on your group, it's good to have an extra bottle or two ready in case a few more people show up or you've got a couple of extra thirsty friends. Line up all your glasses, pour, and starting handing out the bubbles.
