Maybe buy her a bottle of yellow glen jewel - its sweeter & lighter than regular champagne (and only like 3.5 standard drinks to the bottle )

You can get pink moscato... moscato is good because it is only around 6% alcohol.. i swear by Brown Brothers wines!
Just asked DD and she loves Midori with pineapple juice!

Thanks everyone. I am so clueless it's not funny. We had a hour long convo today about what she should try but being a non drinker i am not too much help.
She doesn't want to get rotten drunk but would like something that she could drink socially. I couldn't see her in a busy night club but more of a wine bar sort of place. She can't cope with crowds.

Sassy - really I don't find Shiraz strong - but perhaps to some it is. Loving6 - maybe a Merlot would suit better then? Or like Sassy said Pinot Noir or Pinot Grigio would suit.
If she is going to a wine bar, they will happily recommend something by the glass.
I personally don't like Champagne/really sweet wines - they make me feel ill.

My drop of choice is Sauvignon blanc, but it's quite dry.
Brown brothers dolcetto & syrah (literally means sweet shiraz) is a sweet red wine, which is served chilled. It's quite a popular one, along with Moscato.
There is always the vodka cruiser range (yuck!), it's usually popular with the younger crowd.
Apple cider is lovely and refreshing. I like dry cider, but you can get them sweet as well.
For bubbles, she might like Yellowglen Bella..it's nice and fruity.

ive never liked cruisers, i can never taste the alcohol so drink them quick like a can of coke.
personally im a bundy drinker but thats not really girly!! malibu is really nice(coconut rum), mixed with coke. midori is also nice, i like it with milk.
i think beer and wine are aquired tastes, i still havnt aquired the 'matured' palate at 26 for them!!! saying that i drank a bit of peach wine when i was young, its cask goon but not as alcoholic as normal wine.

She should try lindemans early harvest sav blanc or any of the jewel range by yellow glen, all light in alcohol & taste lovely. It will get her used to the taste of wine & slowly introduce her to the affects of alcohol.
I would avoid the pre-mixed drinks or spirits in general. Far too easy to drink & then the affects of alcohol will hit her without her knowing it!
Goodluck, she sounds like a very responsible young lady.

As for red wines - I find merlot is smooth and soft, Shiraz is dry and very full (my fave red).
