Florida law makes no provision for the parents of children or young adults to possess or consume alcohol.  Florida law does permit young adults ages 18 – 20 to posses alcohol beverages when employed in the sale, preparation or service of alcoholic beverages.  Possession is lawful if it occurs within the scope of the young adult’s employment.   Yes, a young adult’s employer can authorize alcohol possession by an underage person, but a parent can’t under Florida law.
