Three healthy non alcoholic cocktails for pregnancy, that look delicious

Although alcohol is off limits when you're expecting I've sought out these delicious non alcoholic cocktails for pregnancy which mean you don't need to miss the party or resorting to sipping sparkling water or orange juice all night! These mocktails are the perfect way to relax and keep in with the party spirit whilst having a healthy time too! Be joyous in the non-alcoholic cocktails aka the mocktail. Plus if your a mum to be with other kids, they can enjoy them too!

1. Juice On The Loose (Source: Sherry Bevan, The Confident Mother, www.theconfidentmother.co.uk)


The cranberry juice in this mocktail provide a vitamin C boost for you and your growing baby and may also help prevent urinary tract infections, which are more prevalent in pregnancy and very uncomfortable.

Serves one

1 cup of orange juice
1 cup of cranberry juice
Small splash of grapefruit juice (or pineapple juice)
Dash of grenadine.

Blend together all ingredients and add ice and decorate with orange slices.

2. The Sleigh Driver (Source: www.eating well.com)

Always end up driving because you're pregnant? This one is otherwise known as the 'designated driver' and packed with anti-oxidants provided by the cranberries. The coconut sugar is a healthier alternative to normal sugar.

Serves one

1 cup cranberries (fresh)
1/2 inch piece of ginger (finely grated)
1 lemon
3 pears
1 tablespoon of allspice
1 tsp coconut sugar
2 tbsps of vanilla extract
3.5 or 4 pints of apple cider
1 cup water

How to make it!

  1. Place the water, sugar, ginger and 1 pear in a large saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally.
    Sieve to strain out the solids and return the mixture to the pan.
  2. Add the other 2  pears, apple cider, lemon and allspice and heat over medium-high heat, regularly stirring, for 15 minutes.
  3. Finally add the cranberries and vanilla and reduce the heat to medium-low so the liquid simmers for 10 minutes (not boils). Serve warm in heat-safe mugs.

3. Non-Alcoholic Sangria (source: http://www.thekitchn.com)


The good old sangria has to make an appearance at a party - try this take for the non-boozy pregnant version.

Serves 8 (so make it for the whole family)

2 cups boiling water
2 black tea bags (decaffeinated tea best in pregnancy and for kids)
2 cinnamon sticks
2tsp honey
3 cups pomegranate juice
1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1 medium orange, sliced into thin rounds
1 medium lemon, sliced into thin rounds
1 medium lime, sliced into thin rounds
1 medium apple, cored and cut into 1/2-inch chunks
3 cups sparkling water

How to make it! 

  1. Pour the boiling water over tea bags and cinnamon sticks and soak for 5 minutes. Discard tea bags and stir in the honey to dissolve.
  2. In a large jug or pitcher, combine the tea, cinnamon sticks, pomegranate juice, orange juice, orange, lemon, lime, and apple.
  3. Place in the fridge for at least 1 hour or preferably overnight.
  4. Just before serving, stir in the sparkling water. Serve in glasses over ice.

4. Virgin Mary (source: Sherry Bevan, The Confident Mother - www.theconfidentmother.co.uk)

I love this one - the tomato juice will give your body a great dose of vitamin C to boost the immune system to ward off colds and flu which may prevent you from going to the party!

Serves one

120ml (4 fl oz) of tomato juice
A dash of fresh lemon juice
A dash of Worcestershire sauce
Two drops of tabasco sauce

How to make it! 

Blend all the ingredients together and then strain into a tall glass over a good helping of ice cubes.

5. The Preggatini (source: preggatinis) 

My favourite mainly because of the name! Another vitamin C booster from the orange juice to improve your skin and gums (which can become sensitive during pregnancy.

Serves one

1 cup of orange juice
Dash of grenadine
1 cup of sparkling cider

How to make it

Blend the juice and cider together with the grenadine and add a cherry for garnish.
