Thirsty Thursday – Mocktails for Mamas

Good morning mamas!

I’m the first one out of my close friends to be pregnant, so I learned to be creative at happy hour early on. I’ve since let them in on my good news, but I still rely on my favorites whenever I go out because plain water just doesn’t do it for me when I’m out on the town.

Before my friends knew about the pregnancy, I would get to the place ahead of time. I would tell them that I was getting there to secure a table, but really I was establishing a rapport with my server. I would let them know that I was expecting, but not drinking would cause suspicion and ask them for any suggestions.

My go-to is usually a glass of prosecco and my favorite suggestion was to have ginger ale and club soda poured into a wine glass. The club soda lightens the color of the ginger ale to look more like white wine. I would tell my server that I would like a glass of prosecco and they would bring me the ginger ale drink. My friends were none-the-wiser (I think).

Mock Prosecco

As winter starts to become a distant memory and springtime is here, I plan on having a lot of fun, fruity sippers to celebrate the warmer weather and have gathered a list of my favorite recipes here and you can bet your ass I’ll be trying these out soon!

Happy drinking!

    Love the idea of getting there early to clue your server in — genius! I wasn’t a big drinker before pregnancy, but there were definitely times that the absence of a beverage was a serious tip-off to friends. Will have to investigate the mocktails idea in the future. I’m quite obviously pregnant now, but there’s always next time. 🙂
