    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!
    Thank you. She is a great kid.

    I love all wine - I recently tried Moscato (Whispers is nice, as is Sweet Lips Gossips). It's very sweet and it's not what I really class as wine (lol) but it's nice nonetheless.

    I also tried cask vodka on Christmas Day and to my surprise it was lovely! It was called Mohito - vodka, lemon with a dash of mint. Was sooooo refreshing and the dangerous thing is it didn't taste particularly alcoholic.

    I agree that getting her to try something sweet to start with is a good idea. My personal preference these days is Johnnie Walker (straight with ice) or a good Cab Sav or Chardonnay but when I was younger I was right into the sweeter stuff.

    I fourth rekorderlig lime and strawberry!

    I like vodka, cranberry and lime.

    Cocktails I like are strawberry daiquiris, midori splices and toblerones (though if she doesn't like chocolate nix this one).

    I love a nice SSB or merlot for wine.

    And bourbon and coke if I'm out with the boys as I don't drink beer.

    Lolly water is all the rage with young ones, but I actually think they are dangerous because the alcohol is TOO well hidden.

    Agreed, it's really easy to drink too many of them if you're still learning your limit.

    I really like Jack Daniels and Lemonade. It takes the edge off the whiskey without destroying it's taste, and it's sweet without being over-sweet

    you should be able to buy individual bottles/cans of a few pre-mixed spirits, that way she could try a bit of each and find out what she likes and what she doesn't without spending a heap of money on 4packs or 6packs of them.
