While you can certainly serve wine and champagne at your baby shower, this often daytime event may have those who prefer a non-alcoholic drink. After all, the mom of the hour can’t drink anyway. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun! These baby shower mocktails will be so yummy you may just skip the real deal yourself.
1. Faux Champagne
Champagne is the go-to drink for celebrations. Luckily, it’s easy to make this for a mixed crowd. Go with sparkling apple juice or white grape juice. Add a raspberry to each champagne flute if the baby-to-be is a girl or use a blueberry for a boy.
2. Mock Moscow Mule
Moscow mules are refreshing any baby shower. So how do you skip the vodka? Use club soda instead! You can find a great recipe using ginger beer, lime juice and club soda at The Merry Thought.
3. Non-Alcoholic Sangria Punch
Punch doesn’t have to be spiked. Make a refreshing Spanish-style mock sangria using decaf black tea, pomegranate juice, orange juice and lots of fresh fruit. Check out The Kitchn’s easy recipe.
4. Watermelon Mock Martini
Break out the martini glasses for this mock martini Driscoll’s. It uses strawberries, sour mix, seltzer water and mint for garnish. This will go perfectly with some cocktail shaker party favors for your guests.
5. The Cherry Bomb
No Shirley Temples for you. You can drink baby shower mocktails and still feel like a grownup. The Cherry Bomb from Martha Stewart has grenadine, citrus soda and lots of cherries. Serve these in It’s a Boy or It’s a Girl cocktail glasses for a creative way to reveal the gender of the upcoming bundle of joy.
6. Mom-Friendly White Russian
