Ice estimate needed - winter party edition

I need help figuring out how many bags of ice to buy for an upcoming party. Information I’ve found online seems to apply only to outdoor summer parties, and isn’t applicable.

Details: 45 people in attendance, I suspect 20 -25 will have mixed drinks requiring ice (the rest I expect to drink beer and wine). The party is in the evening, 5 hours long. It’s will be freezing outside – and we’ll keep drinks and ice outside as fridge space will be at a premium (so, mix will be kept pretty cold). We do have one medium size ‘tub’ (would hold perhaps 18 beer) that may be used to hold some ice and beer, kept indoors. I can figure out ice for the tub, it’s drink ice I can’t get my head around. How many bags do we need? Thanks!
