Spring Mocktails for Pregnant Moms

I know what you are thinking; a spring mocktail is nothing compared to a spring cocktail! I totally get it. One of the things I look forward to most in the springtime is refreshing cocktails. Sitting on my patio after a long day with my two year old is the perfect time to sit back and relax with a cool refreshing drink to take the edge off. Well, needless to say, this spring is a tad bit different for me, as I am preparing to give birth in the next eight weeks. So no cocktails for me! However, I’ve still been craving something cool and refreshing after a long day and these four spring mocktails do the trick! Check out the instructions for each mocktail below.
