Seconding the mead option. Tends to be hard to find, but worth it if you can. Only one of the places near me carries it, and they only have 2 brands, both local. It's pretty easy to get carried away though - it's as strong as wine, but tastes like liquid honey and goes down easy.
Oh, and don't go for the carbonated kind. The carbonation makes it more acidic and less sweet.
My girlfriend really likes this stuff called Kinky Liquer. It's bright pink and tastes like mangoes and other tropical fruits. Relatively weak though.
