Fun and fruity drinks aren’t off-limits while you are pregnant! Try these delicious mocktails while you're abstaining from alcohol for your little one.
Mango Ginger Margarita. Ginger will help fight off nausea in those early, queasy months. Muddle some raspberries and mix in 1 tablespoon of lime juice, 1 teaspoon of grated ginger, and ¼ cup of mango juice. Top with a lime wedge.
Watermelon Mocktail. Watermelon is full of immune-boosting lycopene and vitamins A and C. All you need to do is mix ½ cup of watermelon (muddled or blended), ¼ cup of grape juice, and ¼ cup of tonic water. Garnish with a wedge of watermelon to make it extra festive.
Baby-Friendly Bellini. Don’t skip Sunday brunch! Make a mock Bellini with ¼ cup of apple juice, ¼ cup of peach juice, sparkling water, and a dash of simple syrup. You can also make a faux Mimosa by simply subbing sparkling water or ginger ale for champagne.
Virgin Mary. Enjoy a Bloody Mary without the vodka. Just mix tomato juice, Worcestershire sauce, a dash of Tabasco, and a squeeze of lemon.
