THREE MOCKTAILS EVERY PREGNANT WOMAN SHOULD TRY…

If you’ve got a bun in the oven or just fancy going alcohol-free try adding these mocktails to your repertoire…. 

I’ve got to admit – I really miss having a drink when pregnant. It’s not just the social aspect of popping open a bottle of prosecco while partying. But sometimes I miss just sitting down once my son is in bed and fixing myself a drink. Call it a ritual, a routine or maybe just a much needed relax but when you’re pregnant a tea and a Tim Tam in the evenings doesn’t always cut it. That’s why I was thrilled when I first heard of Seedlip. Coined ‘the world’s first distilled non-alcoholic spirit’ the drink (which has two variations) has many similarities to gin – minus the alcohol part. It’s not only clear like gin, but is made the same way (without the fermentation process) and comes in a weighty bottle not dissimilar to Tanqueray. The idea is that it provides a similar experience to drinking alcohol – without the effects. Their ‘Garden’ offering is made from peas, hay, spearmint, rosemary, and thyme, while the ‘Spice’ uses cardamom, oak, lemon, grapefruit. And that taste? I found it bitter but when mixed with other beverages it really makes you feel like you’re having an alcoholic drink. Read on for some of Seedlip’s simple non-alcoholic drinks.
