Mocktail Anyone? 

This refreshing tasty drink is the perfect mocktail for when you’re with friends and family for the holidays and everyone but you is enjoying the bubbly.  Good times ladies! 

The big  bonus here is it actually has ingredients that benefit and help with those pesky pregnancy symptoms. 

According to The American Pregnancy Association Ginger Ale can  help reduce nausea and morning sickness and it’s completely caffeine free so it’s a perfect alternative to caffeinated sodas. 

 Raspberries contain strong antioxidants such as Vitamin C, quercetin and gallic acid that fight against cancer, heart and circulatory disease and age-related decline. 

They are high in ellagic acid, a known chemopreventative, and have been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. Plus just look at the incredible colour. Who wouldn’t want to drink this, pregnant or not. 

So what are you waiting for? Impress all your friends and enjoy yourselves. 

 To make about four servings you’ll need to heat a punnet of raspberries in a saucepan with a tsp of honey until softened and then blend up until smooth. next push the mixture through a sieve to remove the seeds. 

You’ll be left with a smooth coulis. Mix one part diet lemonade with three parts ginger ale and spoon a tablespoon of raspberry coulis in and stir. 

Enjoy poured over crushed ice with slice of lemon!

Cheers Ladies xx
