Easy and Delicious Mocktail Recipes
This is NOT a pregnancy announcement, so don’t get any ideas!
I’ve been pregnant 5 times. That’s 40 weeks, 5 times. That’s a long time to be pregnant. 4 of my pregnancies were during the summer months. What I always appreciated during the summer was when my friends had some easy and delicious mocktails for me to enjoy! Obviously when you’re pregnant, you can’t drink… so it’s a great opportunity to enjoy a mocktail! If you’re not familiar with what a mocktail is, it’s a nonalcoholic drink consisting of a mixture of fruit juices or other soft drinks. I’m seeing a true baby boom right now, so many of my friends are expecting (not me!!!!!!) and I want to make sure this summer I have on hand some yummy mocktails for them! I spent all last night (while watching the Celtics game) researching different mocktail recipes online. I want to find some different ones and some standard ones for my pregnant mama friends! And you know what, for just anyone who doesn’t feel like drinking any alcohol! Mocktails are super fun and easy to make, so I’m excited to see all the different options and recipes that I can create this summer!
Make sure you bookmark this post or print it out so you have this on hand throughout the summer! Everyone loves to feel refreshed in the summer, so live it up with these mocktail recipes!
