What are the best tasting sweet alcoholic drinks for beginners? Many different types of alcohol can be classified as “sweet,” and they all have their own distinctive flavor.

Disclaimer:This post is intended for people of legal drinking age. Always drink responsibly, never drink and drive! If you’re a beginner and have a low alcohol tolerance do NOT push yourself. Alcohol poisoning can be fatal. While sweet alcoholic beverages are delicious they can creep up on you. Be aware of your consumption and stay hydrated, for every cocktail follow-up with a glass of water. Don’t drink on an empty stomach.
What is the best alcoholic drink to start with when you’re new to cocktails?
The world of cocktails can be very overwhelming for beginners, especially if you are drinking them for the first time. If this is your case, then it’s best to go with something easier to drink that doesn’t overwhelm your palate with a raw alcohol flavor.
If you want to go traditional starting out, you can’t go wrong with classics like Piña colada, Strawberry Daquiri, Frozen Mudslide, or a Mint Mojito!
What type of alcohol makes the best tasting sweet alcoholic drinks?
Many people think that all types of alcohol taste the same, but that’s not true! Each liquor, malt beverage, beer, wine, and mixed alcoholic beverage is unique in its own way and every person’s palate is unique!
The type of alcohol you choose will depend on your personal preferences and what “flavor” you are looking for when drinking a cocktail. Alcohol types can be divided into four main categories, which include clear spirits (vodka, gin), brown spirits (whiskey, rum), Ales (beer), and wines.
Vodka is a popular choice for beginners; some say it tastes like rubbing alcohol while others love it. Whisky is also a go-to for people who are new to drinking. You can choose from several belly-warming flavors like cinnamon-y fireball whiskey, PB Whiskey, and so much more!
You can pretty much take any hard liquor and create a sweet drink from it, so pick a base that you think you’ll like and go for it!
