It is estimated that each person will have 5 cups of a non-alcoholic beverage in four hours. You can calculate by multiplying the number of guests by the number of drinks by the number of ounces in a drink and dividing by 128 to convert ounces to gallons. In this case, 100 people times 5 drinks each times 8 ounces (standard cup size) = 4000 ounces / 128 = 31.25 gallons.
