There is a way to do what you want to do, but probably not the way you are doing it. The current way is probably going to require a liquor license and also opens you up to a lot of liability. You should see a local attorney about the way to organize this as well as the disclaimers you should use.
We aren't allowed to give legal advice on here but I can tell you that you can ask the attorney about ways to take a referral fee or a planning fee but the liquor guy still needs to be an independent provider like an independent contractor.
With this much liability you will want a corporation formed by a lawyer as well as for all of your agreements to be drafted by the lawyer.
