I am not a big drinker to start with, but after three pregnancies and what feels like years of nursing even I find myself sometimes craving a little treat. One day I was searching the web and came across this fabulous book called Preggatinis. It is chock full of fun alcohol-free drink recipes.

It was created by Natalie the “Liquid Muse“. She follows drink trends and adapts them to non-alcoholic beverages. She also helps create many signature drinks for celebrity baby showers.

If you are planning a baby shower, need a little treat, or (like my case was) are part of a bachelorette party but cannot participate, I highly recommend checking out this book and blog. Below is just a sample of one drink on the site:

The Los Angeles Cocktail

The Sweetheart Cocktail (Martini Glass)

1 1/2 ounces Pinky vodka
1 ounce simple syrup
3/4 ounce lemon juice
1/4 ounce Campari
1 small egg white
1/4 ounce grenadine for garnish

Shake all ingredients (except grenadine) vigorously, with ice for at least 15 seconds. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Slowly drizzle grenadine into the cocktail, allowing it to settle at the bottom of the glass, creating a layered effect.

  1. I would like to clarify (and this is my fault for putting up that recipe):
    The Liquid Muse (Natalie) creates signature cocktails for many big events. The cocktail recipe that I attached is simply her cocktail of the month. In the actual book “Preggatinis” the cocktails are created from freshly squeezed juices, fresh fruit or vegetables, herbs and homemade syrups. They are much more healthy then simply sugary mocktails and are a delicious option when pregnant. When your nine months are up, check out the liquid muse for other great cocktails like the “Sweetheart”.
    Sorry for the confusion. Neither I nor Natalie recommend consuming alcohol while pregnant.
