Am looking forward to a few Christmas do's over the festive period and saw a recipe book for cocktails today. Now i am no big drinker but would like to have some alternative to lemonade/coke/fruit juices to try over Christmas. Does anyone have any tried and tested non-alcoholic cocktail recipes or a website that might have some? Just thought it would be agood place to share for all those alcohol free ladies out there. TIA
Ginger beer and cranberry juice with a slice of lime is nice. It feels kind of cocktail like, I drink it all the time even when not pregnant as its tasty. Sainburys alcohol free sparkling wine is good as well, think I will get a few bottles in for christmas and new year.
Morrisons sold a fantastic non alcoholic sparkling wine when I was pregnant with ds2 - not horrible and sweet like most are. I really felt like I was drinking the real thing. Don't know what it's called though unfortunately. Otherwise, tonic water with ice and a slice was my regular tipple - could almost pretend that there was gin in it
Great thread. I am sick of 'normal' soft drinks, and whilst I like Becks Blue, having something a bit more special at Christmas would be nice. (I will be having a glass of Champagne on the day and New Year's Eve mind you).
Will definitely be trying the apple juice with mulled spice bag and ginger/cranberry combo- thanks!
Mmm. I'm looking forward totrying some of these. Christmas parties can't come soon enough! Now all i've got to do is to figure out how to make my large black tent dress look more interesting for Friday night.
cowboylover sounds like the same dress. HAve bought some very sparkly flat shoes as well from debenhams and am looking for some sparkly accessories to match. Though the sow has put paid to any shopping trip i'd thought of for now.
This site has loads of alcohol-free stuff. I haven't tried any of the wine, but was planning on ordering some sparkling wine for Xmas. I tried the Natureo from Waitrose and found it too sweet, almost tasted of apple juice.
I found the site when I was searching for Erdinger Alcohol Free Wheat Beer, which is amazing.
I drank Bentleys on holiday all the time. Just make sure it is the non-alcoholic version you ask for or you'll get one with apple brandy in it. 1 (measure) - lime juice 2 (measures) - cane sugar/syrup 4 (measures) - fizzy or still water 2 dashes - Angostura Bitters (technically it is alcoholic but I think two dashes can hardly give the baby brain damage can it)
