I need a drink

From time to time I enjoy an adult beverage, but I don't like to taste my liquor. Basically, I like drinks that taste like candy. What would you suggest for me? Additional requirements below the fold.

I am neither a lush nor a teetotaler - I like the occasional cocktail, and I want it to taste good. I can't drink beer (hops allergy), and I don't like wine. Hard liquor has always made my nose crinkle. My favorite drinks are coffee liquor and milk over ice (delicious but heavy, and tons of sugar in the liquor), or watermelon pucker with lemonade (light and refreshing, but still, sugar). While both of these make my mouth so very, very happy, Type II diabetes has me searching for something equally delicious, but not quite so horrible for me. I'd also like something that I can easily request from a bartender, without having to give a full speech. I'm going on a cruise in January, so would like to indulge a bit then. Asking now so I have time to try out your suggestions and find my new go-to drink!
