    Default I need a drink

    I have not had a drink in a LONG time and feel like I could do with one at the moment. However since my gastric sleeve surgery I can not handle much in the way of fizzy drinks and last time i tried to drink I had 1 vodka and orange and it gave me a terrible upset stomach so DH suggested maybe try wine. The problem with that is I don't know anything about wine, I tried one years ago and it was sour and made my mouth pucker so then it was suggested maybe try a sweet wine. So before I race to the bottle-o I figured I would ask for suggestions on a nice sweet wine, don't care about colour because honestly I have no idea on the difference between red or white I just need it to taste sweet and refreshing and give me a buzz.

    How sweet? Moscato is sweet (too sweet for me). Also some rose varieties can be on the sweeter side.

    I have a big sweet tooth and love a lot of really sweet fruits if that helps. Sorry I am a bit simple when it comes to wine

    This might help (it might also be overload, but just look for the adjectives you think would be appealing) http://winefolly.com/review/beginners-white-wines-list/

    Moscato is about the only wine I like. Its easy to drink and a large glass makes me nice and relaxed.

    Maybe port? It's quite sweet.

    Marlborough sauvignon blanc is quite easy to drink, although the it's more dry.
