Mock-Tails

One of the hardest things for most pregnant women is not being able to have a drink for 9+ months. Even longer if you are breastfeeding. I'm not a huge drinker, but I do enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine here and there and on special occasions. I mean, what is a woman suppose to do after a long day of dealing with the kiddos. After they go to bed all we wanna do is unwind with some peace and quiet. Either alone or with our husbands. So what is a girl suppose to do to unwind herself now while pregnant?  Although I  can't have alcohol I can still have a nice refreshing drink and pretend ;) It's not hard to whip up pregnancy "mock-tails." Here are three to try.
