My 5 Favorite Mocktails

June 15, 2020

Whether you're pregnant, a non-drinker, sober, or the DD for the day, everyone deserves a delicious drink. If pregnancy has taught me one thing, it's how much of my socialization is centered around a delicious beverage. Girls bachelor nights with wine. Sunday funday with Adam and Moscow Mules. Chick-Fil-A drive through with a large diet lemonade. See, I don't always need alcohol :)

During Quinn's pregnancy, I tried all the non-alcoholic wines, and spoiler alert - they all suck. You won't find any wines on this list. And I'm sure I'll hear people who swear by a certain brand, but let's be real, if you weren't pregnant, you wouldn't drink that "wine."

That is how I made this list - mocktails I will still drink when I'm not pregnant.

If you know anything about me, you know how much I love champagne. It's my favorite cocktail, because let's be real, it's always a good time to drink bubbles. Breakfast - mimosa, brunch - mimosa, afternoon and dinner - champs. It's the best. I did some due diligence on finding delicious alcoholic bubbles. Introducing my first choice in the mocktail department.

1. Fre Sparkling Brut 
Ingredients & Recipe: Open bottle, pour in a champs glass, enjoy!

2. Seedlip Grove 42 + Ginger Beer + Lime. If we're Instagram friends then you've seen me talk about Seedlip before. My sweet neighbor gave me this spirit when I first got pregnant and I've been hooked ever since! If you love Moscow Mules - you will love this.

3. Seedlip Grove 42 + Orange LaCroix + Lime. Also, if we're Instagram friends, you know my obsession with orange La Croix. I am not usually a La Croix fan, but pregnant Kristen drinks it by the gallon. 

4. Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade Mojito. I'm obsessed with mojitos. But truth be told, I never order them when we're out, because they are such a pain to make! But they are so dang refreshing! 
  • Handful of mint leaves - muddled
  • 2 oz freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 8 oz Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade - this brand is my favorite!! 
  • Top with Lime La Croix (or plain sparkling water)
  • Garnish: Raspberries, mint, lime wedge

5. Sparkling Peach Bellini. If you've ever been to Oreganos, you know about their peach bellinis. They are a delicious frozen cocktail with so much good rum on top and of course, champs. Here's a mocktail version! 

What's your go-to mocktail?
