Sweet, but not sour, cocktails?

Pei | Jan 17, 2007 08:48 PM

I need some ideas. I'd like to switch to making cocktails with dinner instead of wine. Not that I don't love wine, I just need a change for awhile.

One of my friends who comes over a lot, however, doesn't like anything sour. She won't even drink orange juice because it's too sour for her. As you can imagine, I'm hard pressed to think of cocktails she'll enjoy. Lemon drops and margaritas are out of the question, as are some of the more interesting blood orange concoctions. Besides, what with the citrus prices in California...

A cosmo might be okay, but what else is there?

She doesn't have a taste for the stiffer drinks like a martini, and I'm put off by creamy cocktails like white Russians so I don't have the spirits to make them.
