Mommy to Be Mocktails

As promised!  
Today I give you 3 Mocktails that have caught my eye during the first trimester.
Having a glass of wine is said to be perfectly safe these days (according to some sources) 
 during pregnancy, but if you know me at all you know that safe or not, I just won't go that route.
However, after sweet little Baby G arrives safe and sound you can best believe I will
request a bubbly glass of champs, a stiff G + T or maybe I will go with 
that gorgeous deep red Malbec!  Then again, I'll probably be too tired to even 
hold my head up for sip.  Time will tell! 

 Yall know this mommy to be LOVES a good ole Mimosa so when I laid eyes on 
this virgin Orange Strawberry Mimosa I squealed just a little.

1 cup of Orange Juice
1 ½ cup of sugar
2 cups of Strawberries
2 cups of water
16 oz club soda

In a sauce pan cook ½ cup of sugar and orange juice down until it becomes thick syrup. 
Set aside.  In another Sauce pan combine 1 cup of sugar, strawberries and the water, 
heat until the strawberries turn to mush. In a silver strainer strain all the strawberries 
off until your left with the strawberry juice. The get 4 champagne flutes fill the 
orange juice ¼ of the way up. Add the strawberries until it is ¾ the way up from the
 glass and top glass off with club soda.
