21st birthday surprise?!

Question: 21st birthday surprise?
My boyfriend's 21st birthday is coming up, and I'm hoping to have some kind of celebration that includes alcohol to some extent. He's not really a drinker, so I was thinking of incorporating it into a meal we fix (I'm not gonna surprise him with the food, he'd have more fun making it with me).

Otherwise, I'm thinking of having a small sampler bar of drinks he might like (going fruity is probably the safest). Or doing the opposite and having some normally alcoholic drinks be virgin style.

Do you have any ideas on what to do, or possibly some drink recommendations?

(I'm not yet 21, so getting drinks will be harder but manageable)

Do not give individual drinks. Instead, make a whole pot of
mixed tequilla with lots of juice...it is rather juice with a bit
of tequilla to give flavor. To find out what other choices of
mixed drinks...with lots of fruit flavor you can offer...just
google "mixed drinks" and you will choose one or two ....Good
ps. Offer either one or two mixed drinks -- no more, economic
and safe.

have a vegas themed party! that's what we did for my sisters 21st birthday! it was way fun! there was lots of food (and drinking) and cake and we had a dealer come and do gambling. it was super fun, you just have to have the right decorations, food, drinks, and people there.

I am a bit biased but try Peacock Bar Club in Clapham Junction they have lots of birthday suprises. Read below

Our basic format is 4 shows / two performers from 9pmish with 70s /80s /90s/00s disco after till 2.30am. Whilst there is no charge for entry or min spend seating is prioritized for groups eating /coming early on Sats (also 2 for 1 cocktails pre 8pm).

Party Faves

- one hour cocktail lesson BUT (at £19 pp /3 cocktails each or £30pp 5 cocktail version) WITH YOU AND HEN? maybe doing more so we can get lots of shots. However must start early for that. Insanely popular now and had rave reviews in Time Out "Cocktail Clubbing" and Fluid Foundation "Top 10". Check out http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=PeacockBar#p/u/32/3fZVWvEuskk

- White Tie drinks reception either champagne or sparkling wine variant (£5 /£3 per flute) also very popular served by our guys in white tie all posh like. Other drink options like V, M or C Heaven also popular but not advisable to do more than two of drink options really

-Flaming champagne bottle, glasses & bucket (£30 house / £50 Mumms). We bring a bottle of champagne, & bucket with glasses and ice to your table. Nice but not exactly memorable. However in our version we put a roman flare in the bottle and bring it slowly through the crowd and everyone starts cheering / watching Great fun. Works best if kept as a surprise and done in between shows when lights down. Check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DokrD9e8vVg&feature=channel

- Flaming Designer cake (large £35) with message from you on cake comes with sparklers /roman flare you both cut up from behind bar and we take pics. Also works best if kept as a surprise and comes out late in breaks between shows. Also do a variation where at same time bring wrapped present with sparklers attached to your table (no charge for this). Works best if kept as a surprise and present is either very romantic or rather rude! Check out http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=PeacockBar#p/u/40/IksaWe4EhV8

-Stage? Dressing Up? Both are a very very good idea makes it really special and you will have tons more fun. Dressing up can be really simple (eg just accessories like hats & shades and anything period works very well here. Or just very glam/sexy/vampish!). We have people coming from all over the country just to go on stage. Can though decide on night having seen other people go on stage if shy! Check out "Stars In Their Eyes".

-“Testio /God Is A Dj”. Give us your 5 favorite songs- we put you on the pulpit behind the decks for that Ibiza Dj “giving it large” moment all caught for ever by our photographer – and yes we have glowsticks too! Works best if you wave your hands around manically as you work the crowd into a frenzy (hopefully) or at least your loyal friends anyway!
