As mentioned, I’ve had to get creative in finding summer beverages that I can enjoy while expecting. I love using ginger beer because it’s been my saving grace with morning sickness. I literally NEVER used to drink soft drink but I haven’t been able to get enough of ginger beer most of my pregnancy! Baby obviously loves it!

I’ve had a lot of fun playing with drinks and this is one of my favourites This mocktail is a fresh and Summer time drink that you could sip all day – the tartness of the cranberry and pomegranate marry perfectly with the sweet and zesty ginger beer. Add the lime for a tang and you’ve got yourself a winner!

The method couldn’t be easier but just make sure you find 100% juices that have no added sugars. If you’re making in bulk, I suggest you make it in a jug and pour it out as this takes less measuring.

P.s If you’re a booze hound, feel free to add a few shots of your favourite white spirit. Vodka would work well!

    I’ve been trying to have a bit of a detox since the December/Xmas madness is over, and have been overdosing in Ginger Beer too! I’ve just been adding fresh lime and mint leaves to mine, with a dash of soda water too. Might need to try out your version though, slightly more fancy!
