Mocktail ~ Moscow Mule


Oddly since becoming pregnant I’ve been craving cocktails, wine, sangria, you name it. This came a little bit as a surprise because I’m not a big drinker. On average I would maybe have a drink or two per month. It must be a physiological thing or something, you always want what you can’t have right?

Well I decided instead of fighting it why not enjoy a mocktail now and then. The other day it was hot and I was really craving a Moscow Mule. Which were my current favorite before getting preggers! However they are made with vodka, not allowed. So I set out to make my own.

Here’s how I made my mock-mule:

Juice of 1-2 limes (depending on the size of your glass)

Ginger beer (I used Reed’s)

Sprite or ginger ale

First I squeezed the lime juice in my glass. Next fill your glass 2/3 with ginger beer, finish it off with 1/3 of sprite (adjust the amount of ingredients to suit your taste). Add a lime wedge or two to you glass and enjoy!

Not only was this delicious and easy but the ginger can help sooth an upset tummy. Double bonus!
