Being pregnant over the festive season can be a truly wonderful and magical experience, until you end up drinking water and tea all night long, that is! 

 

Why not add a little festive cheer to your beverages this Christmas by creating your very own tasty mocktails.

 

They are simple, quick, full of flavour and very easy to do – here are three lovely ones to make:

 

1. Cranberry mock-jito

 

 

Ingredients:

  • Handful of cranberries
  • 1 tbsp mint
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Sparking water
  • Fresh mint to garnish

Method:

  1. Mix all ingredients together in a food processor, apart from the sparkling water.
  2. When you have blended it to your acquired taste, pour in the sparkling water – as much as you like.
  3. Give it another quick spritz in the processor to combine all the ingredients.
  4. You can drain the bits using a sieve if you like.
  5. Pour into a glass and garnish it with the fresh mint leaves.

 

2. White faux-wine

 

 

Ingredients:

  • White grape juice

  3. Place in the fridge for an hour to let the flavours mix.
  4. Add a little ice before serving to keep it chilled.
  5. Pour into a glass and top with fresh mint and lemon slices to garnish.

Ingredients:

  • Apple cider
  • 100ml Orange juice  
  • Peel from one orange
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar

  3.  Strain the cider into glass tumblers and serve.
