it's that time of year! the time of year where every pregnant woman pines after every single cocktail within a 10 mile radius... other wise known as the holidays!! as most of the people in my life can attest to, i haven't really been craving my usual glass of pinot or in the summer an ice cold margarita, but i can't help but feel a little left out of the festivities without a cocktail in hand. so, i went to the experts on two new cocktail recipes, my friends at lupo verde gave me the recipes to great mocktail fall to winter mocktail classics. 

the mango mocktail has been my go-to since the hot summer months and is to die for, but this time i wanted something a little more warm and crisp. they came up the "raspberry crush" and "fall medley" (named by yours truly of course). 

fall medley

2 oz. Apple juice

.5 oz. Pineapple juice

.5 oz. Lemon juice

1 tsp. Maple syrup

.5 tsp. Honey 

handful Muttled grapes

2.5 oz. club soda

raspberry crush

1 handful muttled raspberry 

2.5 oz. Apple juice 

1.5 oz. Pineapple juice

1 oz. Lemon juice 

2.5 oz. club Soda 

my favorite? the fall medley of course! who doesn't love a mocktail that has maple syrup in it! but both are super easy to make and all with ingredients that you might have on hand or are super easy to get. nothing too fancy! 

and for those playing the not pregnant version of this game, just add a little proseco to the raspberry crush or a bit of bourbon to the fall medley and you're in business (that's for post carbaby's arrival for me)! 

CHEERS! happy thanksgiving!
