Can a 16 year old boy drink cocktails already?

I was just wondering if a 16 year old boy can drink cocktails. My cousin wants to drink cocktails during his birthday but he is only 16, so we didn't allow him, just to be safe. Is he old enough to drink cocktails? If so, what kind of cocktails can he drink?

    Not a good idea but here is the link to the law on this subject:

    Legally, your position is governed by where the alcohol is drunk. If this is to be at home you'll be ok.

    Bear in mind that young livers and brains are not as able to process alcohol (which medically speaking is classed as a toxin or hard drug) as adults are, so one or two may be ok but I wouldn't risk any more than that.

    There is no safe limit giveth for teenage drinking and some believe there is no safe limit.

    Make sure he has food with this cocktail,

    It depends on the country or state he is in but as far as I know 18 is the legal drinking age.
