I really don't miss drinking...until I'm around drinks. :)
Charm City Daddy has been great and gave up drinking along with me which has helped a lot. We don't keep much in the house--just wine/beer for guest in the basement. Btw the savings has been incredible on our restaurant bills.
I ran across this article today and it got me thinking that I could share my post on my favorite "mocktails" of choice since getting knocked up.
My favorite drinks come in the form of spritzers like:
-cranberry and club soda w/ lime
-pineapple juice, lemonade, club soda w/ lemon
-pineapple juice, orange juice, spash of soda w/lemon
There are a million possibilities. It's silly but I find the addition of the lime on the glass ( a fancy glass) really makes me feel included when others are drinking.
Hopefully I don't sound like a alcoholic saying this but I really miss having a beer along with my crabs or steamed shrimp. Something about the salty/spicy splendor of the Old Bay mixing with the beer is indescribably Maryland and delicious. It is going to be a looong summer without the beer/crab combo, but I'll just have to add it to the growing list of things I will binge on when baby is out!
While we're on the topic, another favorite summer time fav cocktail of mine is Corona-Lime Juice Punch. Just take a six pack of ice cold Corona's and dump it into a pitcher. Then add a single can of frozen concentrate lime juice. Stir and serve immediately. Delicious!
Okay..I'm working myself up. I need to stop talking about the alcohol. Back to my ginger ale.
