There are sweet drinks, and bitter drinks, and often, people who like one kind don't like the other. I prefer sweet drinks myself - cosmo, sangria, rum and Coke with grenadine. A White Russian is good, too - vodka, coffee liqueur (Kahl˙a or Tia Maria), and cream on the rocks.

Amaretto and Cream, kahlua and cream, chocolate martini, any kind of daiquiri.

I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

As an after dinner drink, I know a lot of women who like a grasshopper. I am pretty much a straight up or martini person. Any of the sweet martini takeoff (Cosmo, etc) drinks probably would be welcomed. A lot of the medium priced chain restaurants have a selection of sweet drinks on the menu, mostly with an indredient list.

I googled this out of curiosity. Drinks have their own life cycle. Last Christmas when my family was home they traded in their margaritas, our family drink of choice, and were all drinking martinis, although they live in different areas.

From what I read there is a drink called Sex on the Beach - a tropical mixture of peach schnapps, volka, cranberry juice, orange juice and pineapple juice that seems to be popular with the 20-somethings.

To be on the safe side, there's always wine.

If you make one of the fruit drinks like margaritas, etc. Forgo the mixes and make it with the real ingredients. A major difference, like whipped cream and miracle whip.

one of my favorites which she might like its a cherry lemonade. my summer drink of choice

Bacardi Lemon + Lemonade (country time powder*) Marachino cherry and juice

*By using the powder you can control the tartness of the drink.
