Drinks that are under 5% alcohol at 18. Drinks over 5% alcohol at 20.
Raise the drinking age for spirits and wines (anything over 5% alcohol) to 20. Keep beer and cider at 18. That way, young people can start at lower percentages and learn to handle their alcohol instead of jumping right in and trying to get as drunk as possible. Raising the drinking age to 20 may just make silly 20 year olds, instead of silly 18 year olds.
