I think part of the problem is that alcohol makers are marketing their alcohol to appeal to teens. You say that girls don't take alcohol due to the sweetness, but lots of modern day alcohols ARE very sweet and taste like candy. Think of Rum and Coke. An Amaretto Sour. These taste like candy and teen girls love the flavors of them. They like that the drinks make them feel strong and powerful. But as we know, a drunk teen girl becomes at risk for all sorts of things.
