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).
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!
