Good to hear your cider is okay then If you don't mind your cider flat, then I would encourage the honey route. Drop in a few campden tablets and your choice of honey; sounds pretty good.

The type of honey you use can provide a distict flavor, but I'll have to leave the advising of type and amount to the experts.

Go for it Punn, for sweetness then you can't beat something natural like honey

just gonna go with clover for the sweetness. actually gonna add some before killing the yeat off, always good for more alcohol, plus like i said honey ferments out somewhat sweet anyway.

some sort of time-delayed one-per-bottle campden tablet would be a neat idea I think. You could prime your beverage, toss in a tablet, and cap the bottle. Yeast would have some time to carbonate the brew, then the campden kicks in and kills them.

does anything like this exist? I would use it to make some rootbeer for my son (he's eager to brew some beer with me that he can drink, too.)
