10 Drinks For When You Turn 21

when you turn 21

21 is the last and biggest birthday milestone before you hit the big 3 by which you really can’t bluff yourself that you are no longer an adult. Almost like a coming-of-age, get the balloons, party poppers and booze out to celebrate when you turn 21 because it will only happen once! Here are 10 drinks for when you turn 21 so that you can party up a storm!


One of the best and most classic cocktails to order and popularized by Carrie in Sex and the City. Made with vodka, triple sec/curaçao liqueur, cranberry juice and lime juice. The cosmo is one sexy fruity cocktail you don’t wanna miss!

Sex on the Beach

A fun, silly, light-hearted, easy-going fruity cocktail that is delicious, Sex on the Beach is an easy drink especially if you are new to the alcohol scene.

Dirty Shirley

Reminisce your childhood with this boozed up version of the Shirley Temple but do not shed a tear as life will (most probably) get better as you turn 21. Chin up and the world is your oyster!

French 75

Coming from the World War I era, this cocktail is named after the French 75 field gun as the strength of the drink is said to be as powerful as a gunshot. The French 75 looks seemingly mild but I guess looks can be deceiving. This is one drink that is sure to surprise you!


Jagermeister and Red Bull in one shot. Sounds like a mouthful and it indeed is one. An extremely popular bomb shot, the Jagerbomb is sure to get your party started.

Old Fashioned

The OG cocktail, that has been around for more than two centuries, this cocktail definitely is a sign of coming of age. Made with bourbon, bitters, club soda, muddled sugar, and ice, it is a simple yet great cocktail.

Tequila Sunrise

The Tequila Sunrise evokes the feeling of a summer sunrise with the blending of colors in this drink. It only has three ingredients—tequila, grenadine and orange juice—and is served unmixed to preserve the colour of each layer. It is essentially sunrise in a glass and is a great drink for when you turn 21.

Long Island Iced Tea

A collision of four different spirits, this cocktail is not for the faint-hearted as it is nothing like its namesake. Its colour comes from the dash of cola added to bring this drink together. Do not overindulge in this drink as it contains a higher alcohol percentage due to the ratio of the spirits to the mixer!


What differentiates a stout from other beers is its roasted flavour which comes from the roasting of the barley. A flavour that is not easily stomached by everyone, try out a stout as you turn 21 to see if this flavour suits your palette!


Invented when Count Negroni asked for gin into his Americano instead of soda water, the Negroni is a dangerously alcoholic cocktail! Perfect for those of you who want to challenge yourselves when you turn 21.

Enjoy your celebration for when you turn 21 and remember to commemorate this important milestone in your life with your loved ones! Drink responsibly and safely. Check out Boozez.com for more cool content!
