I'm really happy to be pregnant again but I'm not gonna lie I really miss my glass of wine ( or two) at weekends in the garden.
Anyone recommend a nice refreshing drink to have instead??

San Pelligrino Limonata stops me from vomming

Ginger beer! Helps with morning sickness too smile Also, if you get tonic water with a twist of lemon and lime you can pretend it has gin in - tastes pretty much the same.

Lime and soda;
Tonic water with lots of ice and a slice of grapefruit;
Cobra zero or Becks blue ( i was not a lager drinker pre-preg but these are ok);
Shloer (various flavours served in a champagne flute blush);
M&S do some nice summer cordials (elderflower, peach etc) which are ok with lemonade or soda

We really like the Kopparberg alcohol free ciders. There is a pear one and a strawberry and lime one which are both nice although the berry one is so so.

They aren't really very cidery, more sparkling juices like Shloer or Appletiser. Now I'm not pregnant, we use them as mixers with liqueurs too.

Cold fizzy water with mint and lime

shloer is lovely, the red one

Bottle green elderflower cordial with sparkling water, lovely! I'm enjoying it right now for the exact same reason smile

Virginia Mojito. You can convince yourself you are drinking a proper Mojito. Taste just like the real thing.

Cranberry juice, tonic water, twist of lime... you an almost imagine you are drinking a cosmopolitan martini

Elderflower for me, always felt that it tasted better in a wine glass too...

Thankyou, will try some of those xx

Shloer is lovely. I was bought some non alocholic rosé style wine recently which was nice. I think it was called Eisberg?

Beansprout30 Sat 02-Jul-16 17:41:18

White grape and apple Schloer

ThatsNotEvenAWord Sat 02-Jul-16 17:43:40

Fake gin (flavoured syrup) and tonic

Innocent Bubbles is refreshing and not very sweet if you like fizzy drinks, or Appletise.

ShatnersBassoon I agree Innocent bubbles are actually refreshing and not too sickly, sometimes cola has the illusion of refreshing but just leaves me more thirsty because it's essentially just sugar.

Grapefruit and soda
Cranberry and lemonade

Blood orange San Pellegrino is lovely over lots of crushed ice, Tango also do a blood orange fizzy pop.

Or tonic water and lime cordial with a lime wedge and again lots of crushed ice.

CremeBrulee Sat 02-Jul-16 19:47:47

Coconut water with a splashing of cranberry juice served over crushed ice

So many of these other suggestions are tooth-achingly sweet. Sympathies op. I'm in exactly the same boat as you and it's rubbish.

Decent lemonade with a glut of balsamic vinegar does a decent impression of Pimms believe it or not! Especially if you put all the gubbings in it.

And Aldi have a range of fizzy drinks with quite interesting flavours, the margarita one is good and the raspberry and mint too

Sparkling water with frozen berries instead of ice cubes.

Another vote for San Pellegrino Limonata mmmm

Birdlet Sat 02-Jul-16 21:37:40

Another vote for elderflower and sparkling water! Lovely with a squeeze of lemon or lime smile
Only drink I'm finding refreshing at the moment!
