I’m having some girlfriends over tomorrow night for a ladies-only potluck and have been trying to come up with a cocktail that will start the night off right–but which will also still be interesting and unique sans alcohol. For example, I make a pretty tasty Dark & Stormy (Cruzan rum has made all the difference), but without the rum it’s just ginger beer. Tasty, but not interesting.
Inspiration struck this past Sunday during brunch at Jo’s, however: I usually have the house Pimm’s cup with muddled cucumber, strawberry, ginger ale, and Pimm’s No.1, but ever since I found out we are expecting I’ve been having mine with a mix of Seven Up and Ginger Ale to replace the Pimm’s. Delicious!
Alyson came up with this cute recipe card for her favorite mama mocktails! And a friend’s husband recently poured me a glass of coconut water in a chilled martini glass and added a twist of lemon–brilliant! What are some of your suggestions? Anything else I should consider shaking–or stirring–up?
