Shake it Up

3 Uptown mocktail recipes by Dovetail plus 3 Downtown entertaining tips by Little Miss Party Planner equal a recipe for fun.

Shake it Up

There are so many amazing things going on in that Bump Enviable midsection of yours, but even with all those little miracles happening, we understand you may want to smack the wine glass out of non-pregger hands. How many ways can a girl really order a bubbly water? And while many studies show that having a glass or two of vino once in awhile during pregnancy may be okay, we understand if you're cautious and abstain altogether. In fact, we commend you.

But you've still got your own shower and other non-baby related affairs to attend this summer. For that reason, we asked the folks at the very delicious Dovetail uptown to empathize and create a few special non-alcoholic recipes for you to enjoy. We also visited our friends Michelle and Seri of Little Miss Party Planner Downtown and asked them for some tips on the best ways to present a signature mocktail (or post-baby cocktail!). “Guests love to walk up to a bar where there is a signature drink as it eliminates their having to think of what to order or pour. It also adds an unexpected element to the event when you dedicate a drink to the guest of honor!” says Little Miss Party Planner.

So cater to your guests (and yourself) with these refreshing non-alcoholic recipes by Dovetail and party tips from Little Miss Party Planner. Cheers!
