In Texas, anyway, around that time, I don't even think there was an open container law.
When I was of similar age, here they would have most likely had them pour the booze out or, more likely, transfer the contents of the cooler to the trunk of the police car, given a warning or possibly a minor in possession, and followed them home (assuming there was a licensed driver who wasn't totally blotto.) It's possible that the officer would go to the door with them and talk to the parents.
