SAFE and yummy holiday drinks!

Pregnant this Christmas season? What a pity! You can't drink alcohol, have to say no to sweets, eat just right (not for two! haha)~ which are all hard to do when you're bombarded with yummy Christmas food almost every day! And the never-ending parties? Temptation through and through! :p

So what's a pregnant lady got to do? Find safe for pregnancy non-alcoholic holiday drinks and healthy (AND scrumptious) party food of course! :) Here's an oldie but goldie drink recipe that I loved when I was pregnant for the first time in 2009: 

The Bumptini (SOURCE)

3 ounces pomegranate juice
2 teaspoons white sugar
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 ounce lime-flavored club soda
1 tablespoon raw brown sugar (garnish)
*1 lemon twirl (optional garnish)

1. Rim a martini glass with raw brown sugar by rubbing the rim of the glass with a lime wedge while holding it upside down, then dipping it into a small plate of sugar. Set aside.
2. Muddle the ginger and white sugar in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Add the juices and ginger and ice, then shake vigorously. Gently strain into the sugar-rimmed glass, then top with club soda or ginger beer.
3. Lay a lemon twirl across the surface of the drink.
