Hm wines. My mother (actaully pretty near a teetotaller) used to make a few. One I used to particularly like (and we had a massive blanket of these that kept expanding when we were in N Wales last time) was cowslip. The "inedible" plum tree there also had fruit that could be turned into a reasonable wine.

Other drinks:

Masses of sloes here but if I pick them, it's to give them away. I love sloe gin but can do without that temptation.

One my mother makes and both parents love from pickings round the back is elderflower cordial.
