Preggatinis

I love, love, love girly mixed drinks!! I didn't drink a lot, but I do like to have one if we were going out. But, since we are TTC, I have cut myself off.

Imagine how happy I was to find Preggatinis!!



These are perfect for any party or baby shower!!
And if you haven't told anyone you are TTC, these are the perfect cover when spending a night in with your friends!!

Pictured above and below: a few sample recipes & liquid-eye-candy images from Preggatinis:

Pour in juices and dash of bitters, then top with blood orange soda.

2. Pomegranate Cooler
