    Default Help with alcohol/wine for dd.

    I need help with finding a wine/alcohol for my dd. I was never a big drinker and I haven't drunk any alcohol for 19 years now. Dh hasn't drunk for that long too. So I have no idea.
    She would like to try some.
    What do you suggest for her to try?
    I think she like to try some wines and maybe a few mixed spirits etc...

    She loves lemon lime bitters, hates chocolate and coconut.

    Help me help her please.

    Oh Btw this is for her 18th.

    cruisers (vodka)- raspberry is good, very sweet. or a vodka lemonade premix.

    midori pineapple. nom.

    that's my kind of drink. if she wants to try a wine, that's a bit more of an acquired taste. a good sweet one to start off with, which is still my favourite wine, is brown brothers moscato.

    gin and tonic isn't bad, it's not as sweet.

    i have a sweet tooth..

    DD is 18 and very rarely drinks anything. They few times she has had one or two drinks she has liked the pink vodka cruisers, midori and i think vodka and orange maybe?

    It all comes down to personal preferance.. i would probably go for something like midori or cruisers so they aren't too strong for her

    lol we think pretty much the same! And moscato is my favourite wine! DD hates any kind of wine though.. the young ones don't seem too keen on wine

    Midori, or vodka (cruisers if you want pre-mixed), tequila is nice (sunrises, yummy!), bacardi (probably spelt wrong) breezers, uuummm that's all that I have really tried. No idea on wines, but I do tend to like the white wine that is pink (roset??) but honestly couldn't tell you what it is called haha..

    Yup probably best to try her with something fairly sweet to start.

    The pre mixed drinks like cruisers could be a good one to start with. Lots of different flavours.

    Moscato is nice and sweet (and quite tasty) wine.

    Could always go for good old West Coast Coolers or Passion Pop!

    Muscato is a sweet fruity wine, my fave is sweetlips by gossips. But midori splices have always been a love of mine, I do add milk/cream to it . I'm not a huge drinker, infact I can't have more then like 2 before I am done for the night.

    Coming to you from a galaxy far far away.

    Ruski Lemon lime and bitters (vodka premix)

    Definitely the brown brothers moscato yummo.

    Verdi raspberry - sweet but oh so nice.

    mm bicardi breezers aren't too bad. bicardi is white rum. not quiiiite my taste, but i had them once and once i got drunk enough i stopped being able to taste them anyway lol

    i definitely think midori, or if you go vodka either cruisers or smirnoff. smirnoffffffff it's been too long!
