I haven’t had a cocktail since 2015. Truth. Among the list of things you have to give up during pregnancy…Rosé, Red Wine, Margaritas and Moscow Mules. Just a few of my favorites.
However, I haven’t deprived myself. Mid-pregnancy when we would go out to dinner, I’d say, “I’ll have a mocktail, bartender’s choice!” Or, I’d revisit my childhood and have a Shirley Temple.
I picked up a few things from those crafty mixologists. In fact, I created a few simple drinks at home this summer that were heaven. That was before I got the worst heartburn ever, and now I am just drinking water 24/7.
When you are pregnant, it’s not about what you are giving up, it’s about celebrating the little things, and finding things you can enjoy and create.
Here are a few can’t miss mocktails for the mom’s. Enjoy!
As I mentioned yesterday, I dream of white kitchens. I love contrast, so when I design this fantasy kitchen in my imagination, I envision white walls, marble counters, interesting detail with marble backsplash and pops of brass, bronze, black and leather tones. This is my inspiration board for ‘someday’.

After receiving several recommendations, I’ve narrowed my list. I think my beach days for the summer are officially over, but I am going to embark on casual reading during the wee hours of the night, and just pretend I’m on the beach!
Here are my 7 picks:
