Just because you’re pregnant, doesn’t mean you have to lock the fun away for nine months – making mocktails is a great way to keep the creative juices (and fruit juices) flowing throughout pregnancy. Below are some of our favorite mocktail-making supplies, that can help complete any kitchen or home bar.
Margarita Mama by Alyssa Gusenoff
Margarita Mama offers instructions for making a wide variety of non-alcoholic cocktails, from Mai Tais to Mimosas, to Pineapple Mojitos and more. And not only are they alcohol-free, but Gusenoff makes sure to include a healthy serving of the nutrients that mom and baby need in each and every mocktail.
