I knew I’d draw some folks in with that title. So I’m knee deep in this “growing a human” thing and have been battling the urge for my favorite summer cocktails. After some research, I’ve found that virgin drinks can be fun too. Check out these prego friendly mocktail recipes.
Virgin Mary – If you love brunch as much as I do, you’ll love this Virgin Mary. The healthy beverage is packed with Vitamin C, magnesium and Vitamin K. Mix 3 ounces tomato juice, 3 ounces cranberry juice, 1/2 tsp. Tabasco, 1 tsp. lime juice, fresh black pepper and garnish with lime or celery.
Bellini With Baby – A classy champagne flute is a must have for this easy and refreshing beverage. Mix 2 ounces peach nectar with chilled sparkling cider and enjoy!
Mai Tai – This drink screams pool time! Mix together 1/2 cup pineapple juice, 1/4 cup club soda, 1 tbsp. Grenadine, 1/4 cup orange juice, 1 tbsp. cream of coconut. Garnish with tropical umbrella and pineapple wedge.
Margarita – The queen of all summer drinks can be good sans tequila. I swear. Throw together 1/4 cup sour drink mix, splash of lime juice, splash of lemon juice and ice. Blend until icy smooth. Don’t forget to rim your glass with salt and lime.
Mojito Mocktail – I could never leave this prego mocktail favorite off the list. Mix together 2 tsp. sugar, 4 mint sprigs, 3 tbsp. lime or lemon juice, 1/2 cup club soda and 2 dashes bitters. Add mint, lime juice and sugar first then use a muddler before adding the rest of the ingredients.
See, virgins really can be fun….
