    Going to a cocktail making afternoon for my friends birthday and was looking for some ideas on what to make. I cant drink vodka (makes me violently ill) and I dont like gin or tequila. I dont really like baccardi but would drink it in a cocktail. I would normally have pina coladas (ultimate bliss) but want to stay away from creamy things. I have a very sweet tooth and would normally drink tia maria or baileys (pre sw of course:rolleyes::p).

    We get to make 3 cocktails so what would you suggest?

    What about cocktails based around blue curacao (citrus liquer) or passoa (passionfruit liquer)? They're lovely and sweet and not vodka based drinks. There's a list of cocktails at the address below, split into the different alcohol types:

    Amaretto also makes a nice base to cocktails, as does Midori (a melon liqueur - very refreshing).
