Any tips on how to stop feeling so sleepy would be great, I don't get this way on a night out, it's just when we have a night in.

1: Keep yourself active when your drinking, socializing, dancing, whatever it may be. The more I sit down / take it easy, the easier it is for me to grow bored of any specific activity. Don't take too many risky steps when your intoxicated, you WILL regret it somewhere sometime.
2: Try a different form of alcohol, for example, I can drink beer and wine just fine but if I drink hard A I will be wanting to sleep within an hour. I don't care to get scientific today so give it a shot and see if it works for you too. (This does not mean supplementing your desire for one with another, it's about substitution. E. g. Replacing your desire for hard-a with a desire for wine instead)
3; I've noticed that lifestyle has atremendous impact in the style of drinker. I used to drink for a good time, but now I drink a beer as a reward for a hard work week. Once you realize the difference here you'll change your drinking habit subconsciously to the style you want to be at. And yea, I love the feeling of drinking too but in moderation. Getting sloshed just to wake up the next day going "wow what a crazy night" are days that have been left in my past for a reason, there are new priorities and ways I can venture that lead to twice the fun all while being sober.

Do you take any medication? Alchohol can influence how medications act and may cause side effects. Also are you staying hydrated while drinking? this is crucial. For every drink you need to also drink water to hydrate yourself. Also maybe try taking a nap before a night out. I used to do this at uni.
