 I've also tried cutting meads, wines and such with water or aparkling
water which gives you a mildly alcoholic bend without being too much.  Plus
it's period.  Most wines were slightly waters -- at least there is a number
of references to feasts with ewers of wine well mixed with water.  If you
consider the fact that they drink them rawer than we do and/or with a more
sharp flavor (sweet, sour, or whatever)  It also makes sense.....
	We do it with stuff just not usually meads.
