Birthday Mama

I recently found out that I am going to be an aunt for the first time, and not just to one baby — my brother Justin and his wife Jenn are having TWINS! This week is Jenn’s birthday, so I thought I would toast the occasion with Jenn’s very own Preggatini. That’s right, I said Preggatini. From Natalie Bovis-Nelsen (aka The Liquid Muse), Preggatinis: Mixology for the Mom-to-be is a collection of delicious and colorful sips that any expecting mom can enjoy. Here are Jenn’s favorite sips, Preggatini-style.
3 oz. cranberry juice
1 oz. lime juice
1/2 oz. mandarin orange juice
1/2 oz. orange-flavored syrup
1 lime twirl

Shake juices and syrup with ice. Strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a lime twirl.

Coconut Key Lime Momtini
3 oz. limeade
1 oz. coconut milk
1/2 tsp. powdered sugar
1 oz. Stirrings Clarified Key Lime
2-3 drops vanilla extract (optional)
1 teaspoon coconut flakes

Shake first five ingredients with ice. Strain into a martini glass. Garnish with coconut flakes.

    These sound good…it’s nice to have festive drinks for moms-to-be to enjoy. (Club sodas get boring real fast!)

    Christa, congrats on your impending aunt-hood!
