    Another vote for vodka cruisers. My favorite when i was 18. Steer very clear of smirnoff double blacks then are potent. You could try lemon ruski. Stay away from Malibu if she hates coconut.

    I'd avoid premixed drinks too - they're easy if you're at a club but if she's going more to wine bars etc then she may as well get something freshly mixed.

    Vodka lime and soda is nice and not too strong or bitey.

    In regards to wine, you could get her a tasting guide so that she can learn to distinguish between the different varieties and work out what she likes - sweet, dry, fruity etc. I found wine much less 'wine-y' when I could appreciate the differences.

    If she does want to try wine avoid really cheap stuff - it's bad for hangovers!

    If you can start her on a low alcohol beer that's probably bes t because you can buy them in really low alcohol which is what I stick to most of the time. Otherwise how about Wes tcoast Cooler? It's like a wine but not entirely like a wine.

    I would just go to the bottlo and ask for a sweet bottle of low alcohol sparkling wine, eg moscato.

    Tell her to man up and drink beer for when she's going out though, as it's a practical drink which is always available. Seriously though, it will be safer drinking beer as 250ml is a standard drink, versus smaller amounts for wine and spirits. And it doesn't go down as easily as alcopops. I think white beers and golden/summer ales are easiest to drink. Again, if you ask the bottleshop staff, they can help you. Avoid cheap and nasty beer like xxxx, as that would turn anybody off for life.

    Sounds like you have some great suggestions already, but I will add my 2cents too

    Heaven's Gate Moscato is a very sweet and yummy wine, there is also a white you drink on ice I think it's called O but if you speak to the attendant they will point you in the right directions, it's kind of a bubbly wine and it tastes yummy when you make sorbet champers (just mix a whole bottle with a tub of sorbet)

    As far as spirits go, Tequila sunrises and Fruit tingles are easy cocktails to create and as PP have mentioned West coast coolers or Vodka cruisers(the new carnival flavour is yum) are a safe pick also.

    XXXX is my beer of choice for the simple reason that it really is available anywhere. Also with that you feel full before you actually have too much alcohol in the system. If that is unavailable the next choice is Hahn for me.

    But yes for wine I love the Brown Brothers Moscato or for bubbly I like the Brown Brothers Zibibo Pink.

    Corona with a wedge of lime or Carlton draught are my beers of choice rekordelig ciders are excellent, especially the strawberry & lime flavour, tastes just like real strawberries

    Lots of awesome suggestions already. I definitely agree to start on something sweet.

    I just wanted to say I think it is brilliant that your daughter is so level headed that she is yet to try any alcohol. It makes me sad to see kids as young as 12 out roaming the streets at night, drunk. I hope I can raise my kids to be as responsible as yours, OP!
