I was at a holiday party this past weekend and as wine was being passed around I noticed my friend was opening her own bottle. “What’s that?” I asked. And she replied “sparkling cider! I’m pregnant, so I’m not drinking alcohol” and we both poured some into our wine glasses, and enjoyed the night with our non-alcoholic beverages.
If you are pregnant, you know you need to stay away from alcohol, but that doesn’t mean you need to miss the party. Don’t be afraid to bring your own cooler of drinks with you – your friends may be asking to have some of yours.
Not sure what to bring? Here is an idea that is festive and works with almost any of your favorite fruits:
- Select a festive glass, such as a flute champagne or martini glass.
- Choose your favorite garnish – lemon, lime, mint leaves, cherries, diced apples or oranges.
- Add seltzer or club soda along with your favorite fruit juice.
For a really fun treat, freeze cranberry, orange or pomegranate juice in ice cube trays and add to your drink. Voila!
