Summer is just around the corner and with the sun comes the season for ice-cold drinks on scorching summer evenings… Sipping delicious cocktails with friends beside a countryside pool, in the midst of a meadow filled with the song of crickets, or even on the beach watching the sand turn pink in the sunset.

But that was before. Before getting pregnant. This year, martinis and rum won’t be accompaning you on holiday.

Fear not! We’ve got an exquisite alternative for you. The mocktail. Commonly known as: the non-alcoholic cocktail. These drinks are on trend. From London to New York there are bars specializing in non-alcoholic cocktails. Bartenders have a real expertise in these drinks, they could almost fool you.

Before heading off on your holidays, pop a cocktail shaker in your suitcase. Here are 3 recipes to get things going!
