17th Birthday Party Ideas?

I turn 17 in November 2015. This my first time planning a party. I don't know what drinks I should give out, since most of my friends are drinkers. I wanted to hand out soda, but I'm stuck on this one; please help.

When you say most of your friends are drinkers, that indicates they drink alcohol. I am sure you didn't mean that. But it did give me a thought that might be fun. There are a bunch of "virgin" drink recipes out there. Here is a link to some of them.

If your parents okay it, it might be fun to have a "mock cocktail" party. This is not to promote how cool it is to drink, before anyone gives me a lecture. But it might be a way to taste what is out there in a fun, safe way.

I like the idea of mock cocktails. That is kind of nifty. Do NOT feel that alcohol is necessary, since all of you are clearly underage. There are many very nice sparkling fruit juices that are interesting. That is what I serve when I invite over adult friends who do not drink actual wine or spirits. I would also have a variety of sodas available. There is absolutely nothing wrong with serving that. My eldest son, who, on his grad had the choice of a safe grad (with alcohol) or a chem free (dry) grad party, chose the chem free one, because he said the chem free parties were way more fun (and much cheaper, besides).
